Notes:

Please note that co-op students are required to pay the Co-op Program Fee of $5,250, broken into three installments of $1,750.00.

* Health and Dental Plans (covering September to August):  All Co-op and Full-time MBA students are required to pay Health and Dental Insurance fees totaling $258.00. The non-refundable administrative fee of $30.00 is required to be paid whether a student opts out of either the Health Insurance Plan or the Dental Insurance Plan or both. The costs of the plans are paid per academic year. All Full-time and Co-op students pay for the plans in September 2017. The fees are subject to change each year.

** All Visa students must enroll in the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP):  Please refer to International Students Services for more information.

Payments must be made by the appropriate deadlines listed below:

  • Fall session – September 1
  • Winter session – January 1
  • Summer session – May 1

Any academic course taken off sequence is considered a part-time course and students need to pay extra for that academic course in the term in which it is taken.

Part Time Students – a load of 1 or 2 courses each term is recommended. If a part-time student wishes to enroll in 3 courses, documented employer permission is required. Please schedule an appointment (phone or in person) with an MBA Academic Advisor in advance. Although McMaster University deems 3 courses per term as full-time studies, part-time MBA students will only pay part-time ancillary fees.
