Tuition and Finances

Tuition and Finances

The Marine Institute offers one of the lowest tuition fees in the country. In fact, our tuition fees for our Diploma of Technology programs are the lowest in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Combine that with the fact that St. John's has one of the lowest cost of living rates of all the capital cities in Canada and you'll realize that you can afford to come to MI.
