All academic support fee revenue is deposited into a restricted account. The use of this money is restricted and monitored by a committee made up of student government representatives, faculty members and staff members from Student Services & Enrolment Services.

Academic support fees are mandatory: they must be paid by every student who registers in courses taught on-campus or online during a given term/session/year at UVic.

3 Incidental fees

  • Incidental fees – $1,680 per semester (or $3,360 per year)

  • Student Union (UVSS) activities and services: These include the Student Legal Fund Society legal clinic, Women’s Centre, Food Bank and more. The fee pays for some of these programs as well as the offices and staff who run them.

8 University Of Victoria Tuition Fee

To help you budget for your tuition and fees, we’ve included a table of expected costs for first-year students. The table below shows the estimated tuition and other compulsory fees for domestic students in the fall and winter terms.

  • Tuition is a flat rate (no fee per credit hour) determined by your faculty. For example, if you’re going into Commerce or Education, the tuition will be different from those who are going into Science or Arts.
  • Academic support fees are mandatory fees charged to all undergraduate students to pay for various academic programs at UVic such as textbooks, library cards and other learning resources.
  • Incidental fees: These include athletics/recreation fee (ACRF), student health services fee (SHSP) and student society building fund fee ($4). ACRF helps cover the costs related to Athletics & Recreation activities at UVic including facilities, equipment rentals and staffing costs while SHSP funds all student health services at UVic including counselling, medical care and dental care services provided by Student Health Services (SHS). SHSP also includes an opt out option which allows students to remove themselves from paying this fee if they wish not receive any of these services provided by SHSP on campus – visit If you have chosen not pay either ACRF or SHSP but later decide that you need one or both these programs please contact Student Accounts immediately because there is no way after registration closes that changes can be made without having penalties applied against future term assessments!

Finally there’s also an extended medical plan available through Sun Life Financial called “UVIC Extended Health & Dental Plan” which provides coverage beyond what OHIP provides; however since it’s optional it’s important that potential students understand how much it would cost them before making their decision whether or not choose this plan – visit https://sfnuvicstudentsunlimitedbenefitsnewsite91867208936/?fbclid
