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.

Tuition and fees are typically updated yearly for the upcoming Academic Year, which begins in the Fall, in May.

Current amounts may be based on last year and are subject to change. Ancillary fees vary by campus.
