Tuition Fees for International Students

International fees apply to non-exempt international students. It includes the University Health Insurance
Plan premium. All international students must have health insurance coverage, which they may be
required to obtain through the University Health Insurance Plan

In accordance with the recommendations of the Ontario government, certain categories of
international students are exempt from paying higher international fees. Instead they pay
academic fees equivalent to those for Canadian citizens and permanent residents (landed
immigrants). Students may qualify for fee exemptions in a number of ways, which are related to
their sponsorship and source of financial support. Detailed descriptions of fee exemptions are
available on the Student Accounts website at http://www.fees.utoronto.ca
