Are AU fees higher than other institutions?

AU course registrations fees are a combination of Tuition, Course Administration and Technology, Course Materials, Alumni and AUSU fees. An additional out-of-province or out-of-country fee may also be charged depending on student residency (address on file).

AU tuition remains lower than most other Canadian institutions. When making tuition comparisons, it’s important to note that other colleges and universities also have other related fees charged in addition to tuition.
