Minimum degree fee for Master's students

All master's students studying at the University of Toronto must pay a minimum degree fee. The minimum degree fee for full-time and part-time students is based on the full-time program length (defined in the SGS Calendar) and the annual full-time program fee (not including incidental/ancillary fees). 

After completion of all program requirements but before graduation, an assessment is made of whether the minimum degree fee has been satisfied. To calculate, add up all the Program Fees that have been charged toward the degree (shown on the student's invoices) and subtract them from the minimum degree fee. Incidental/ancillary fees are not included in this calculation. 

Students who have been charged less than the minimum degree fee over the course of their program, whether registered full-time or part-time, will be subject to a balance of degree fee.

If a student has paid more than the minimum degree fee (due to the time taken to complete the program requirements) there is no refund of fees.

The payment due date for the balance of degree fee is three months after the student's convocation. After the due date, students are charged the monthly service fee of 1.5% compounded (19.56% per annum) for any remaining unpaid fees.

Note: unpaid fees from previous sessions remain payable (and will incur monthly service fees) in addition to the balance of degree fee.

Calculating your balance of degree fee

The balance of degree fee is calculated as the minimum degree fee, minus program fees you were charged over the course of your program.

Example: A domestic student began a Counselling Psychology (Counselling and Psychotherapy) MEd program in Fall 2020. The full-time program length was 2.0 years and the annual full-time program fee (not including incidental/ancillary fees) was $10,070; the minimum degree fee is therefore 2.0 x $10,070 = $20,140. However, the student completed the program in 1.5 years, so they were only charged program fees of $15,105 during their studies. A balance of degree fee of $20,140 - $15,105 = $5,035 would therefore be assessed upon program completion.

Please refer to the following schedules to find the minimum degree fee set for the year you began your studies. 

Your Program Fees are shown on your invoices on ACORN. Please note that incidental and ancillary fees do not count towards the Program Fee, the minimum degree fee, or the balance of degree fee

The Program Length is defined in the entry for your program and degree in the SGS Calendar for the year you started the program.
