Tuition & fee information

Tuition fees

If you're a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada, you'll pay domestic tuition fees.

If you're not a Canadian citizen nor permanent resident of Canada, you'll pay international tuition fees.

Fees are subject to change without notice and are reviewed annually. Royal Roads University reserves the right to correct errors or omissions.

Tuition fees for graduate and undergraduate programs.

Other costs

In addition to tuition fees, you'll need to pay other student fees. They vary from program to program.

Credit card convenience fee

Due to the increasing cost of processing credit card payments, we have implemented a new convenience fee. An increasing number of schools are applying such fees.

To keep a Royal Roads education as affordable as possible, rather than passing processing fees charged by credit card companies on to students through tuition or fee increases, a non-refundable convenience charge of 1.75% will be applied to credit card payments of tuition deposit, program and course fees. This fee took effect May 8, 2021. 

The convenience fee is not assessed on payments made by online banking, cheque or money order, debit card payments made in person and PayMyTuition.

RRU does not profit from the new convenience fee. It is charged to offset the cost to the university to provide credit card processing.
