Online Tuition

Students who have been admitted to online programs will be subject to deregulated fees if they are studying with a residence address outside the province, as the government does not fund the University for credit activities that are followed outside Quebec. All students will have to self-declare their location of study each term in Minerva. Consult the student accounts website – Online Programs page for more information.

International Students

This program is an Online (Distance Learning) program.

Since by definition distance learning does not require one to be in Canada, a study permit cannot be issued for this type of program, nor can one’s immigration status be changed (or renewed). For more information, please visit Immigration Quebec and Immigration Canada.



"I loved being able to attend class online from home. It’s delivered in a way that meets the needs of First Nations communities. Band offices, tribal buildings, and administrators all have people in place with the knowledge and skills to facilitate McGill’s program."
