The tuition for MASc, PhD, or MEng is assessed as an annual program fee. This fee is divided into three equal installments due at the beginning of academic terms (September, January and May). This fee is the same regardless of how many course credits the student is registered in.
Minimum Number of Instalments
Each graduate program has a minimum number of tuition installments required. After the minimum number of installments has been paid, the student pays three more installments of regular fees, and then fees are reduced to ‘continuing’ tuition installments for the remaining duration of the student’s normal time eligibility in the program (five years for master’s, six years for doctoral).
MASC: 3 minimum instalments; continuing fees after 6th instalment.
MENg: 3 minimum instalments; continuing fees after 6th instalment.
PhD: 6 minimum instalments; continuing fees after 9th instalment.

MEng Tuition Fees TUITION FEES
The M.Eng. is considered a ‘Specialized Master’s Degree Program‘. Please consult its fees under ‘Master of Engineering (full-time)’.
• Tuition fees are charged every term a M.Eng. student is registered for courses and/or internship (BMEG 597). Tuition is not charged during an ‘Applied Science Co-Op’ term; but a course fee will be charged. This fee is not considered a MEng instalment. Students must pay a minimum of 3 instalments of tuition per program.
• Important: MENg students must complete their internship requirements AND submit deliverables by the last day of the term to avoid tuition for the following term. If a student misses the deadline for submission he/she will need to re-register in BMEG 597 the following term, and pay tuition and student fees. Partial tuition will be refunded for full unused months once the program is completed. Student fees are not refundable, except for unloaded U-Passes.
MASC / PhD
Students who have paid more than the minimum instalments for their degree will have their tuition fees prorated to the end of the month in which the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies confirms that all degree requirements have been completed. This includes the submission of either their major paper or final project to their department or their thesis to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies’ Office.
