Subject: [Gs-suppstaff-contacts] Differential Tuition Fee Change for International PhD Students
[University of Manitoba Faculty of Graduate Studies]
Dear Department Heads, Graduate Chairs, and Support Staff Contacts,
This email is to inform you that the fee structure for international PhD students is changing effective the Fall 2020 term. As of September 2020 - international PhD students will no longer be required to pay the international student differential tuition fees, and will pay the same tuition fees as Canadian/Permanent Resident PhD students in all years of the PhD program. The Registrar’s Office will be updating the tuition fee information on their website (found by clicking here<http://umanitoba.ca/registrar/tuition-fees/graduate>) prior to the Fall 2020 term to reflect this new fee structure. *Please note that international Master’s students tuition and differential fees remain unchanged at this time.
As international PhD students are no longer paying differential tuition fees as of the 20-21 academic year, international PhD students are no longer eligible for the IGSS and IGSES awards.
International PhD students who were awarded the IGSES and IGSS for the coming academic year have been notified of this change via an email sent to them in the Radius application system. This email was sent to all incoming or continuing international PhD students who were awarded an IGSES or IGSS in the Fall 2020, Winter 2021, and Fall 2021 terms.
We wanted to make you aware of the change in the international student PhD fee structure, and that international PhD students will no longer be eligible for the IGSS and IGSES from the Fall 2020 term onwards. We hope that you see this as good news as international PhD students will now be paying the same tuition as domestic PhD students moving forward.
If you have any questions regarding this change please contact the Graduate Awards Team at graduate.awards(a)umanitoba.ca<mailto:email@example.com>.
