Compulsory Fees for Continuing Studies Students

Compulsory Fees for Continuing Studies Students

McGill Association of Continuing Education Students (MACES)

A fee of $12.99 per course is collected from each student by the University on behalf of the McGill Association of Continuing Education Students (MACES).

  1. Students in short courses, seminars, and workshops that are not recorded on the official McGill transcript are not members of MACES and are not assessed the MACES fee.
  2. The MACES fee does not apply to students who are already members of the McGill Student's Society, except in certain cases where the student is in more than one program. For further information about MACES, see Student Governance: McGill Association of Continuing Education Students (MACES).

Administrative Charges

Administrative Charges

Revision, July 2012. Start of revision.

The University assesses a number of administrative charges to students, which include:

Registration Charge – All students in courses and programs are assessed a registration charge.

Information Technology Charge – The purpose of the information technology charge is to enhance certain technology services provided to students as well as to provide training and support to students in the use of new technology.

Transcripts and Diploma Charge – The University assesses a transcripts and diploma charge to all students. This entitles students to order transcripts free of charge and covers the costs of producing diplomas and some of the costs associated with the Convocation ceremony. Students who attend the Convocation may be responsible for some additional costs.

Copyright Fee – All students in courses and programs are assessed the copyright fee, which covers the cost of the annual fee that all Quebec universities are required to pay to Copibec (a consortium that protects the interests of authors and editors) for the right to photocopy materials protected by copyright.

General Administrative Charge – As per the Quebec government’s regulation on administrative fee increases, the University is permitted to increase this charge by no more than $15.00 per Fall/Winter term and $7.50 per Summer term. In accordance with this regulation, the charge in Summer 2012 will be $22.50 and in Fall/Winter a maximum of $45.00. A portion of this amount (up to $3.00 per Fall/Winter term) is directed to Athletics (except in the School of Continuing Studies). As a result, students may see a decrease in their General Administrative Charge to take into account their additional contribution to Athletics. The other administrative charges (Registration Charge, Information Technology Charge, Transcripts and Diploma Charge, and the Copyright Fee) will therefore not be subject to increases.
