Domestic Tuition Fees for Students in Full-Time Programs

The schedule of fees described in this policy applies to Canadian citizens and persons lawfully admitted to Canada for purposes of permanent residence. International students are required to pay a tuition fee surcharge.

The majority of Michener’s core programs are subsidized by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, helping to keep tuition costs as low as possible.

The Michener Institute reviews all its fees and services annually and makes the appropriate adjustment in the fee structure by February of each year. Fees are based on Michener’s academic year which runs from September until August. Please note that fees are published for the current or next academic year only.

Program Fees

Tuition fees for full-time programs at The Michener Institute are charged by program and not by individual course.

Fees Invoice

Upon acceptance into a program and payment of fee deposit as specified on admission offer, students will be mailed a statement of tuition fees outlining the fees due for the upcoming academic year along with payment options and payment due dates.

Fee Payment: Deadlines, Deferrals, Refunds


Please note that tuition fees are due before the start of classes. Late or non-payment of any portion of the fees will affect student’s registration in the program.

Please note that students must have their deferred fees paid by the due dates indicated in the table above. Requests for a deferral of fee to OSAP funding are made on a Fee Deferral Authorization Form. The completed form must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office by the August payment deadline that pertains to the student (e.g. Year 1 or returning student). To obtain the deferral form, click the  OSAP Deferral Form. The fee deferral form is valid for one academic year (Fall and Winter/Summer semesters).
