Tuition fees for Canadian students attending post-secondary, graduate certificate and bachelor’s degree programs are set in accordance with the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development fee guidelines. Tuition fees usually vary by semester, and vary depending on the program that you are taking.
Tuition fees do not include parking, text books or supplies, but do include specific materials fees (ex. costs for food used while cooking in labs.) In addition, some programs may have a mandatory laptop fee.
How much will tuition cost?
Tuition fees are assessed on a yearly basis, and can be found on the Fees and Finances website. The fees are broken down in a table and sorted by program and year. The table also explains what your money is going towards – tuition, ancillary fees, and so on.
When is tuition due?
The balance of tuition and fees due date is different if you are a student receiving assistance through the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) or a student without OSAP assistance. Tuition and fees due dates are broken down by term start dates.
As a Canadian student, you may be able to claim a portion of your tuition fees as an income tax credit. Read more about T2202A income tax credits.
Tuition fees for International students are assessed on a different schedule than domestic students. Fees for International students are tailored towards your unique needs, and typically include a medical insurance fee and an activities service fee. Fees vary depending on whether or not you are attending an English program, or an undergraduate or post-graduate program.
