*Starting in Fall 2018, international OISE PhD students will pay domestic tuition rates (note that international students will still need to pay UHIP). The tuition fee is applicable to all new and continuing PhD students but is not retroactive; meaning that PhD students will not receive a refund for tuition fees paid on sessions prior to September 2018. Please note, this new tuition structure does not apply to students in OISE's EdD, MT, MA and MEd programs of study.


Tables outline the tuition and fees for one year of study. The final cost of a program is determined by the number of years of registration in the program.

The minimum cost of a Master's program is based on the official full-time program length, which is listed in the SGS Calendar. Completing a program faster than the specified program length will result in paying the balance of degree fee.

Fee Deferral & Graduate Fees

Fee Deferral

Fee deferrals based on OSAP can be processed online through ACORN.

Some students are eligible to request to register without payment (fee deferral) on basis of Major Award, Graduate Assistantship, or Teaching Assistantship.

Graduate Fees

To get a better understanding of your graduate fees, you can also visit the School of Graduate Studies webpage for additional information.

OSAP & Student Loans

The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is a government financial aid program that assists eligible Ontario residents attending university through a combination of loans and grants. Students from outside Ontario who are Canadian citizens, permanent residents or protected persons may be eligible for financial assistance from their provincial or territorial governments.

If you're a full-time student with previous OSAP loans and want to keep your OSAP interest-free status without requesting more funding, you must update your registration status to your OSAP account.

It is a student's responsibility to report their U of T registration status to their loan lender(s).  

Full-time students must report their registration status to the National Student Loans Service Centre no later than 21 days prior to the end of the current study period.
