Domestic Tuition Fees – Base Programs

This schedule of fees applies to Canadian citizens and Permanent Residents enrolled in programs funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) at The Michener Institute of Education’s School of Applied Health Sciences (“Michener”).

Michener reviews its fees and services annually and makes the appropriate adjustments for the upcoming academic year which runs from September until August.

Printable reference for the Tuition and Ancillary Fees 2019-20.

Fee Payment Deadlines

Tuition and ancillary fees are due before the start of classes.

  • 2019 Fall Tuition Fee Deadline – August 9, 2019
  • 2020 Winter Tuition Fee Deadline – December 6, 2019 (January 3 for OSAP students)
  • 2020 Summer Tuition Fee Deadline  – April 6, 2020

Late or non-payment of any portion of fees will affect a student’s registration in the program and a $150.00 Late Payment Fee will be assessed.

OSAP Students

Students who have been approved for Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) funding will have their tuition and fees automatically redirected to Michener. In the event that OSAP funding does not cover the total tuition and fees, students must pay that balance by the OSAP fee payment deadlines.

Tuition Deposit – New Students

New students accepted into programs will be required to pay a non-refundable tuition deposit of $500.00 which will be applied to their first semester tuition. Deposit deadlines will be included in the Offer of Admission. 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 advised of the fees due for the upcoming academic year (viewable on Self-Service)  along with payment options and payment due dates.

Students may choose to opt out by notifying the Registrar in writing.
