Exchange, senior citizens, part-time and double program

Non-Québec Exchange students

Incoming students on formal exchanges are exempt from regular tuition charges and compulsory per term charges. They are, however, required to pay International Health Insurance as well as any additional course charges that are compulsory upon registration. Such additional course charges may represent special activity charges, course materials or fees for non-credit courses. Students may also incur Campus Printing charges, which are charged to the fee account on a monthly basis and represent pay for use of printers on campus. For more information about the Health Insurance for exchange students , please visit Exchange Students website.

McGill students going on exchange are required to pay all the regular fees associated with 15 credits (12 credits in the MBA program).

Québec Exchange (Inter-University Agreements)

Students taking courses as part of the Inter-University Agreement are required to pay the fees at their home university. The Agreement, therefore, relates solely to the transfer of academic credits. International students in undergraduate programs will not normally be permitted to take IUT courses. Students taking courses as part of the Inter-University Agreement are required to pay additional course charges that are compulsory upon registration in a particular course. Such additional course charges may represent special activity charges or course materials. The University reserves the right to refuse course registrations in non government-funded activities.

Senior Citizens

Senior citizens aged 65 and over, registered in courses offered by the School of Continuing Studies, will be credited an amount equal to 50% of the Quebec tuition fee. In addition, those who require financial aid should be aware that such aid will be available for students enrolled full-time in degree programs. Students in need may contact the Scholarships and Student Aid Office for more information at (514) 398-6013. Students at the graduate level who are registered as additional session or non-resident are not entitled to this benefit.

Part-time students

Part-time students will be charged tuition fees at the per credit rates and are also subject to student society fees, student services/athletics & recreation fees, as well as administrative charges (see Compulsory Fees).

Double program assessments

Students in two programs should consult the Enrolment Services Office for information on tuition fees. Adjustments to bills will be made throughout the term when fees cannot be automatically calculated.

Students in two programs normally are billed additional fees for their second program.
