Guidelines to publicly-assisted university-level institutions in effect for the 2019–20 and 2020–21 academic years.

Tuition fees for publicly-funded programs continue to be regulated and are tied to the Student Access Guarantee.

The guidelines have seven sections:

  1. Tuition fee framework rate of decrease and freeze
  2. Application of the tuition fee framework
  3. Tuition fee set-aside policy
  4. Tuition billing policy
  5. Program fee policy
  6. Ancillary fee policy
  7. Reporting and compliance with the tuition fee framework

Unless otherwise indicated in these guidelines, all policies in relation to tuition fees in the current university Ontario Operating Funds Distribution Manual remain in effect. In the event of a conflict between the previous policy and the Ontario Operating Funds Distribution Manual, these guidelines will apply.
