Post-Residency Fees

The Campaign for the Restoration/Maintenance of the reduced fees of Post-Residency Fee systems.

‘Post-residency fees’ refers to a structure in which graduate students, upon completion of course work, pay reduced fees during the independent research and thesis writing stages of their degrees. Post-residency fees are known by a number of names that vary from university to university. Terms such as ‘maintenance’, ‘continuing’, ‘continuance’, ‘post-program’, ‘re-registration’, and ‘additional session’ fees are synonymous with post-residency fees. Many universities in Canada have eliminated their post-residency fee systems, and others are currently in the process of doing so.

If you would like to be involved in this or any other campaign, please join the GSU External Relations Committee by contacting your Director of Communications.
