Tuition and Funding

Program Funding

Awards are available for MA students, and applicants should contact the Centre as soon as possible for more information.

Program Fees 2023-24

The School of Graduate Studies fee structure differentiates between students who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents (non-visa), and students from other countries (visa).

Domestic (non-visa) MA students $6,3900.00 CAD $2,004.00 CAD $8394.00  CAD
International (visa) MA students $28,900.00 CAD $2,004.00 CAD  $756.00 CAD $31,660.00  CAD

Tuition fees for part-time students are pro-rated. International students are not normally eligible for the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP), and are automatically enrolled in the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP).

How to Pay

Fees can be paid at any chartered bank in Canada. Students outside of Canada may forward payment by bank draft or money order in Canadian funds to:

Deferring Payment

Students who have been awarded a University of Toronto Fellowship or an external award (FQRSC, OGS, SSHRC, etc.) may arrange to temporarily defer payment. Students who fail to register by the deadline set by the School of Graduate Studies will be charged a late registration fee.

Students who receive any scholarship funding must be registered full-time in the summer for a minimum of 14 weeks on-campus between 1 May and 31 August to be eligible for the summer instalment.

Fellowship support is usually unavailable at the MA level, but CMS offers various awards and applicants should contact us for more details. Students are also strongly encouraged to apply for external funding and scholarships.
