Tuition
& Fees


There are two costs associated with program: Tuition (based on enrolment as a domestic or international student) and the Program Fee ($4000).

Program Fee: $4000

As this is an off-campus program, there are numerous program related costs that tuition alone cannot cover. Costs related to the program are classroom space, instructor stipends, guest speaker honoraria, transportation for field trips, field equipment and safety gear (i.e. hard hats, high visibility vests, etc.), a two-day guided tour of Gwaii Haanas or T'aalan Stl'ang, and access to required course readings, to name but a few.

A $500 non-refundable deposit much be received to secure your seat in the program. Deposits are applied as the initial payment towards the HGHES program fee. Please refer to the information package HGHES provided to you upon your acceptance for specific information on how and when to submit your fees.
