Fees, Awards & Support

University Fees

Students in professional master’s programs, including the Master of Information and Master of Museum Studies, typically fund their educational expenses through a variety of programs including student loans, student line of credit, and/or employment income from positions on- or off-campus, including the Work-Study program. Unlike research-stream programs, there is no guaranteed funding for our master’s students. Many students apply for government student loans such as OSAP or other provincial loans. Students who are eligible for government loans may also qualify for UTAPS—a grant provided through the University of Toronto. Students may also be eligible for a limited number of graduate awards available through the Faculty of Information, the University of Toronto, and various external agencies. Approximately 20% of our incoming class receive entrance awards from the iSchool every year, ranging from $1500 to full domestic tuition. The PhD funding summary can be found here.
This is an overview of the various expected fees and costs related to a year of study at the iSchool. Important details about all fees and costs, procedures, refunds, deferrals, housing, and more, are available on the Student Accounts website and the Tuition Fee Schedules as posted by the Office of the Vice-President & Provost.
