Tuition and other costs
University can be an expensive but manageable undertaking if you have a realistic financial plan in place before you begin your studies. In the first eight months of study (two terms), you will want to consider some of the following costs:
- first-year tuition rates (domestic and international students)
- housing or residence
- transportation and entertainment
Try the interactive budget calculator to help estimate your first-year costs.
Finance your education
You may be eligible to receive scholarships, bursary, or Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) support to help offset your study costs. Financial aid is based on the results of your marks, application, and/or contest results.
Domestic and international students are eligible for university funding.
