Costs of Education

At OCAD U we’re here to help you understand and plan for the costs of your education. Keep reading for information on tuition, then check out our cost calculator below to see an estimate for the program you’re interested in. 

Tuition

Tuition fees are charged at either the domestic or international rate. The domestic tuition rate applies to Canadian citizens, permanent residents and their dependents, as well as exempted international students. The international tuition rate applies to all other students.

Full-time domestic students should expect to pay around $7,200 per academic year, while full-time international students should around $26,000  per academic year. 

The total fees due is based on the number of credits the student registers for per term. Students will usually take an average of 4-5 classes per term. Classes will usually count as 0.5 or 1.0 credit, so an average student would take 2.5 credits per term.
