Tuition and Fees

Tuition for Single Course Enrollment is charged on the basis of course credit weight as follows:

3 credits
6 credits
9 credits

Supplmentary Fees

In addition to the tuition fee, York University students are charged supplementary fees. Supplementary fee amounts change every term.

To find supplementary fee information, visit the Student Financial Services website. Under the relevant term, choose “Osgoode – Professional LLM”.  The supplementary fees for students registered as full- vs. part-time, and domestic vs. international, are listed. Further down the page, a breakdown of the supplementary fees can be found. Note that this information is aimed at students in the Professional LLM program, and so the tuition information listed here does not apply to SCE students; only the supplementary fee information is relevant.

SCE students are typically registered as part-time. However, supplementary fees for SCE students are calculated based on the total credit weight of the courses in which you’re enrolled. To calculate your fees, note that the part-time supplementary fee amount is correct only if you are enrolled in 6 total credits for the given term. If you are enrolled in 12 total SCE credits that term, you will pay double that amount; if you are enrolled in 3 total credits that term, you will pay half that amount, etc.

Other Fees

Registration Fee: Each term the Faculty of Graduate Studies levies a $15.00 (non-refundable) registration fee.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

Once you have accepted your offer of admission you will be registered in course(s) and fees will be applied to your student account. Course withdrawals are subject to the non-degree students refund policy.  In order to obtain a refund, you must send a completed withdrawal form to your course’s program assistant on or before the deadline below:

  • Full refund: 10 business days before start of course or earlier
  • 40% refund: before the second day of course
  • No refund: second day of course or later

Students are also subject to supplementary fees including health benefits. Find out more about supplementary fees here.
