Graduate Fees  


Fees schedule and invoices

FEE SCHEDULES

In addition to academic fees, students are required to pay incidental fees, which includes campus and student society fees.  

It's important to understand how fees will affect your academic experience, so be sure to read the policies on various fee and payment types.
 

INVOICES

The University of Toronto doesn't mail fee invoices to students. Instead, students are informed of fees payable on ACORN. All students are expected to regularly monitor ACORN for activity and fees owing.

Final-year fees for master's students

Your Fall 2018 session registration and fees are cancelled if your degree recommendation and final master's thesis (if required) are submitted to SGS by September 28, 2018. After that date, you will be required to register and pay fees for the Fall session. Please note that a late fee will apply if you have not registered in the registration period but do not make the deadline and are required to enrol.

You do not register or pay fees for the Winter 2019 session if your degree recommendation and final master's thesis (if required) are submitted to SGS by January 18, 2019. after that date, you will be required to pay fees for the Winter session.

Final-year fees for doctoral students

Academic fees for full-time doctoral students in the final year of their program, and who are before their maximum time limit, are pro-rated based on the 12-month academic year plus sessional incidentals.

Academic fees for doctoral students in the final extension year, and who are beyond their maximum time limit, are prorated based on 50% of the annual domestic fee for the 12-month academic year plus sessional incidentals.

Doctoral students will be billed for the whole year but may choose to pay:
 

  • The full fee; 
  • The minimum first payment (100% of current fall tuition fee charges); or
  • The fee based on the expected date of completion.
     

If you choose to pay less than the full-year fee, a monthly service charge (starting October 15) will be applied to any outstanding balance unless you have made a fee arrangement that exempts you from paying service fees until the end of April.

If you have made a fee arrangement that exempts you from paying service fees until the end of April and your thesis is submitted prior to April, the arrangement will be cancelled. Once your thesis is submitted your balance is due otherwise monthly service charges will be applied on any outstanding balance.

When a final corrected thesis is submitted, fees and service charges are adjusted accordingly. For more information, please review the monthly academic and incidental fees schedule at the Student Accounts website. The pro-rated fee applies to students who have been continuously registered in their program, or who have obtained an authorized leave of absence.

Please note that international students may be entitled to a partial refund of their UHIP fee; these students are advised to contact the Centre for International Experience for more information.

Minimum and balance of degree fees

The Program Length into which you are admitted determines the minimum total academic fee that you must pay prior to graduation; this is called the “Degree Fee." At the time of graduation, the cumulative academic fees paid are calculated and if the total is less than the Degree Fee, you must pay the difference. This is known as the minimum degree fee. 

All graduate students must pay a minimum degree fee. Minimum degree fee represents the minimum amount of tuition that every student, whether registered full-time or part-time, must pay upon completion of the program prior to graduation.

 

MASTER'S STUDENTS

The minimum degree is based on the full-time program length for each master's degree program and is assessed prior to graduation. The minimum degree fee schedule is available here.

Students who finish the requirements for their degree program in less time than the defined program length, whether registered full-time or part-time, will be subject to a balance of degree fee. The balance of degree fee is calculated as the minimum degree fee minus tuition fees already paid by the student.

The due date for payment of the balance of degree fee is three months from the student's convocation. If the fee is unpaid, you'll be charged a monthly service fee of 1.5% compounded (19.56% per annum).

If you have paid more than the minimum degree fee due to the time taken to complete the degree requirements, there is no refund of fees.


DOCTORAL STUDENTS

The minimum degree fee for PhD and professional doctoral programs is the fee associated with one year (three sessions of full-time studies).
 

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Minimum degree fees for international students are based on international student fees. However, certain categories of international students are charged academic fees equal to those for Canadian citizens and permanent residents. For more information, please consult the Student Accounts website.

For international students who change to domestic status during their study period, the minimum degree fee will be assessed as follows:

  • If the legal status change occurred within the program length, the minimum degree fee will be based on the domestic tuition fee.
  • If the legal status change occurred after the program length, the minimum degree fee will be based on the international tuition fee.

Services charges on outstanding balance

If not paid in full, any outstanding account balance is subject to a monthly service charge of 1.5% compounded monthly (19.56% per annum). For more information about service charges, visit the Student Accounts website.
