Program Fees: Fall/Winter 2021-2022

CMCT program fees are available on the Student Financial Services website under the Graduate drop-down: Faculty of Graduate Studies - Masters or Faculty of Graduate Studies - PhD.

Program fees are set for each session and term by the York University Board of Governors, in accordance with the current Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities guidelines. The intention is to provide greater cost certainty to students who decide to attend graduate studies.

Every graduate student at York University is assigned a fees cohort year based on their year of entry to their program of study. If, for example, you are 'new' to your graduate program for Summer 2020 or Fall/Winter 2020-2021, then you are assigned to the 2020 fees cohort.
