Payment deadlines: Students are required to pay tuition and fees at the beginning of each semester.


UNB offers millions of dollars in scholarship support each year to offset some of the costs of a university education. Eligible international students include high school applicants, students transferring from another post-secondary institution as well as students continuing their studies at UNB.

International students can be considered for scholarships once they are accepted and while studying at the University of New Brunswick. All entrance students need to submit an entrance scholarship application. All continuing UNB students need to submit a scholarship application each year to be considered for scholarship support. The primary consideration for scholarship support at UNB is academic achievement.

Available opportunities

Students in financial need may be eligible for assistance. Financial aid is meant to supplement a student’s resources for university, not replace them. Needs-based support is handled through the Financial aid offices in Saint John and in Fredericton.
