Graduate Student Fees

As this is an online program MUFL students are not assessed student fees. This means that AMS/GSS health and dental plan coverage is not provided, nor is access to the U-Pass transit program.

Non-refundable Acceptance Deposit

A non-refundable acceptance deposit of $1,000 is payable upon notification of acceptance into the MUFL program. The acceptance deposit is credited towards the first tuition installment. If the student does not commence the program, the deposit is forfeited.


This program is not eligible for Canadian student loans. Students in the part-time program are not eligible for teaching assistantships or scholarships.
