* 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 that this new tuition structure does not apply to students in OISE's EdD, MT, MA and MEd programs of study.


  • These 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.

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