Tuition & Fees

Tuition Fees and Payments

The payment needed to attend Northern College is called tuition. The tuition and fees are listed for all Programs and Courses and below.

Please note that we give out a large number of awards and scholarships that can help you pay for school. If you are in Ontario, Canada, you can also apply for OSAP, which is a government-funded program to help almost everyone get a College education so that you can find rewarding work and can make more money at your jobs.

Anciliary Fees

In addition to tuition, there are also other fees to pay, but they are much less than tuition. These are called Ancillary fees. Ancillary fees are the additional fees for your education with us that allow us to provide necessary support and services while you are a student, including Academic Technologies, Health Benefits, Convocation (which is your graduation ceremony when you are finished with your studies – yay!), Student ID Cards, and program-specific learning equipment or software and field trips.

Ancillary fees also support other aspects of yours and other students’ Northern experience, such as Student Associations, Athletic Facilities, and Mental Health Supports. All of these things help you to succeed, so please use them whenever possible.
