Your legal documents and why we need them
Your tuition fees at McGill will vary according to whether or not you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, a Québec resident, or international student. Fee schedules are listed at Student Accounts.
Some of the documents we ask from you help us obtain your Permanent Code from the Government of Québec. This code is obligatory for all students enrolled in the province of Quebec, and is needed to comply with government legislation.
If you have previously attended school in Québec you already possess a Permanent Code - you can see it on your school report card or your CEGEP or university transcript.
To determine which legal documents we will require from you in order to update your tuition and immigration status, please refer to the Your documents section.
