Exchange Grad Program Tuition Waivers: Policy, Guidelines, Course Registration Form - Western Canadian "Deans' Agreement"

"reciprocal enrichment of graduate programs":  
tuition waivers for grad & undergrad credit courses that are "an integral part of the applicant's graduate degree program" for "visiting students" who are "paying normal required tuition fees to their home institution."  See links, excerpts below for more details.

"This agreement was established in 1974 as an expression of cooperation and mutual support among universities offering Graduate programs in western Canada. Its primary purpose is the reciprocal enrichment of graduate programs throughout western Canada. This agreement is not intended to preclude other agreements between participating institutions.
  • The Western Deans' Agreement provides an automatic tuition fee waiver for visiting students. Graduate students paying normal required tuition fees to their home institution will not pay tuition fees to the host institution.
  • Students may be required to pay student, activity, application, or other ancillary fees to the host institution, according to general policies in effect at the host institution. Wherever possible, these fees will also be waived.
  • Students will qualify for the fee waiver if they:
    a) present the 'Authorization Form: Western Deans' Agreement' signed by the Dean or designate and Department Head or Graduate Advisor of a participating Western institution specifying the courses to be taken for credit toward a graduate degree program at their home institution;
    b) are in good standing in a graduate program at the home institution;
    c) have paid all current and back fees at the home institution.
  • Students must meet all requirements as prescribed by the host university's regulations, deadlines, class capacities, and course prerequisites.
  • Registration is possible in courses at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, and in credit courses offered through distance education or other means. To be eligible, courses must be an integral part of the applicant's graduate degree program. Fee waiver is not permitted for Audit or non-credit courses."
