Domestic Tuition Fees – Base Programs

This schedule of fees applies to Canadian citizens and Permanent Residents enrolled in programs funded by the Ministry of Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC).

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.

Deposit deadlines (two weeks from date of issue) will be included in the acceptance letter. Failure to pay by the deadline will result in seat offers being revoked.

Fees Invoice

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

Student Bursary Levy

Through a referendum, Michener students ratified that all full and part-time students in base-funded programs will pay a $10 per academic year Student Bursary Levy which is collected with tuition as part of the Ancillary Fees (Alumni Fee). Students may choose to opt out by notifying the Registrar in writing. This opt-out would then be for the academic year (opt-outs must occur each year of study) and they would not be eligible for consideration to apply for the Michener Student Council Awards.

Please note, that under any agreement if The Michener Institute is prevented, delayed or interrupted in performing its obligations due to any occurrence beyond its control, such as, but not limited to, labour disruptions (including strikes, walkouts, and lockouts), wars or acts of governments or government agencies or other authorities having jurisdiction, then such prevention, delay or interruption shall not be construed to be a default under any agreement entered into.
