University Fees

University Fees

University fees consist of tuition fees, incidental fees, and ancillary fees, and are based on several factors, such as program of study, full-time or part-time status, etc.  

Approved tuition and ancillary fee schedules are available on the University of Toronto’s Planning and Budget website.  

Tuition Fees

The amount of tuition you pay depends on factors such as your program and year of study, your course load and your campus. Tuition fees are typically finalized as follows:

  • Summer tuition fees in mid-April 
  • Fall-Winter tuition fees in mid-July 

You can view the previous year’s rates to get an idea of how much your fees will be. 

Incidental, Ancillary and System Access Fees

Incidental fees contribute to things like student societies, campus-based services, athletics and recreation facilities, and student health and dental plans. Many of these fees are compulsory; however, you will have the option of opting out of some by contacting the student society directly.  

Ancillary fees cover things like field-trip costs, or special equipment provided for coursework, as well as administrative costs such as transcript fees or library fines.  

The system access fee is the fee charged to students for access to services such as ACORN and other student systems.
