Free Tuition

Senior citizens who wish to be admitted to the University (as candidates in a degree program or as visiting students) are evaluated as mature students unless they have completed previous postsecondary studies (see above).

In order to be eligible for a domestic tuition fee waiver, applicants must be Canadian citizens/permanent residents and 60 years of age or older by May 1 for the summer session or September 1 for the fall/winter session.

The fee waiver is capped for senior citizens to the level of tuition fees assigned to domestic, non-professional undergraduate arts, science and other programs as defined in the tuition fee guidelines from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. The tuition fee waiver for an eligible senior citizen is restricted to a maximum of one undergraduate or graduate degree. Eligible senior citizen tuition waiver students are required to pay all other fees attached to a course or program, or required during the process of registration (including centrally collected ancillary fees, fees approved by student referenda, material fees, financial penalties etc.).
