External Examiner Reimbursement Policy


We are currently unable to compensate any expenses for external examiner travel. We will be revisiting our budget around this in 2023, and will update the policy at that time.

  • Alcohol.
  • Any travel or meal expenses for other examination committee members.

It is preferred that all examiners be physically present for the Thesis oral examination.

However, in certain extenuating circumstances, it is acceptable—with approval from the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies—that the External Examiner participate remotely. Arrangements for the use of remote access is to be done by the student’s home department. The remote service must be supported by University of Lethbridge IT Services.
