Financing and tuition
For industry members, professional development expenses are allowable under the Ministry Public Services and Procurement standard cost principles.
Tuition cost is spread over three fiscal years, for convenience.
Tuition fees cover:
- All required books and materials, access to our IT infrastructure and University library databases
- An international study tour
- Access to the Centre for Executive Leadership, seven days a week, 24 hours a day
- Nutritious meals and snacks on class days
- Access to office equipment such as printers, fax, scanner and photocopiers
- All benefits for part-time students at the University of Ottawa, including fitness facilities, recreational sports and University library services
- Opportunities to attend a variety of business and international networking events, seminars and other related functions
Many University of Ottawa alumni of this program have found a line of credit with a bank and/or withdrawing funds from their RRSP to be an effective alternative financing strategy.
Under the Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP), you can withdraw up to $10,000 in one calendar year (and up to $20,000 in total) from your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP). Please visit Canada Revenue Agency’s Lifelong Learning Plan page for further details.
Financing your Telfer Executive MBA
Telfer MBCPL candidates who are funding all or a portion of the program tuition fees may personally claim eligible tuition and education amounts (must exceed $100). Fees paid to the student union or association and the Alumni Association and other non-tuition fees such as meals, parking and travel are not eligible for the tuition tax credit. Candidates may be eligible for an education tax credit for each month of part-time or full-time registration. For income tax purposes, a full-time student is defined as a person actively registered in a minimum of two credits per month.
The Tuition, Education and Textbook Amounts Certificate (T2202A) will reflect the number of months of enrollment eligible for consideration as part-time or full-time registration. Further details on the tuition and education amount tax credit is available in Canada Revenue Agency’s General Income Tax and Benefit Guide, by contacting CRA’s district taxation office or by visiting the Canada Revenue Agency website.
Tuition fees for international candidates (including those from the US) are the same as fees for Canadian residents. International candidates will be required to enroll in the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) at a cost of approximately CA $760 per year of enrollment.
