P.2.1 Thesis-Based and Professional Doctorate Tuition

Students in a thesis-based degree (master's or doctoral) program or in a professional doctorate program as indicated below, are assessed tuition fees per term. All tuition fees are charged over three terms: Fall, Winter and Summer. Summer Term is split in half and charged equally in each of the Spring and Summer Intersessions.

Students in thesis-based programs who are permitted to enrol in one or more courses offered by the Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) or Law (JD) program will be required to pay a differential fee. This fee will cover the difference between the MBA or Law course fee rate and the graduate Group A domestic or Group B international course fee rate in addition to regular thesis/professional doctorate tuition.
