Tuition, Fees and Key Dates

Tuition and Fees

2023-2024 JD Program Fees






Ancillary Fees






Beginning in the 2024 academic year, domestic students who are non-Ontario residents will pay a fee differential of an additional 5%. 

All student tuition fees are published here once approved by the York University Board of Governors in the summer.

Your York student account reflects all charges (tuition, fees and on-campus rent) and credits (payments, scholarships, bursaries, etc.). It is your responsibility to review your student account to ensure that transactions are correct.

Joint Program Fees

The JD/MBA Program comprises eight terms. In total, you will pay Osgoode tuition for 5 terms and Schulich tuition for 3 terms. For more information about when you pay which school, please contact the Financial Services Office. Please check the Schulich website to view their current tuition.

JD/MES and JD/MA Philosophy Students in the JD/MES and JD/MA Philosophy program pay Osgoode tuition for all terms spent at Osgoode (6 terms in total) and the other faculty’s tuition when completing work at the other faculty. Please review the relevant faculty’s website to confirm their current tuition.

Registration Deposit

First-year students must pay a $500 registration deposit by the deadline specified with their offer of admission.

Tuition Payment

Tuition and ancillary fees are due in two installments: fall tuition and fees are due on the first day of classes, and winter tuition and fees are due on January 10.

If you are an Ontario resident who applied for OSAP by June 30th, you will automatically receive a deferral of your first half of tuition until October 10 or when you receive your OSAP funding.

How to Pay Tuition

Failure to Pay Tuition

If you do not pay the minimum payment due to the University by the deadline, you will be subject to interest charges.
