Current students can check their course fees by logging into Minerva. All fees are subject to annual review. The University reserves the right to make changes without notice to the published scale of fees. Course fees are exempt from federal and provincial taxes (GST and QST).
To determine whether you will have to pay Quebec, non-Quebec (Canadian or Permanent Resident), or International tuition rates, please consult the Student Accounts website.
Exemption from international tuition fees may be claimed during the semester by students in certain categories.
Students must fill out the International Student Fee Exemption Form and submit it to the School of Continuing Studies with the required documents. Students who qualify for one of the exemptions are then assessed at the Quebec tuition rate or Canadian tuition rate (as applicable).
In addition to tuition fees, the following administrative charges will appear on students’ e-bills:
Registration charge: The University will charge a registration fee to all students in credit courses and programs.
General Administrative charge: Students are assessed a general administrative charge for the Spring/Summer and Fall terms. Students registered in the Winter term will also be assessed a general administrative charge ONLY if they did not register for a course in the Fall term.
Transcripts and Diploma charge: This entitles students to order transcripts free of charge and covers the costs of producing diplomas and is charged to all students.
Copyright fee: This charge covers the cost of the annual fee that all Quebec universities are required to pay to Copibec for the right to photocopy material protected by copyright.
Information Technology charge: This charge covers certain technology services provided to students as well as to provide training and support to students in the use of new technology.
MACES charge: A fee per course is collected from each student on behalf of the McGill Association of Continuing Education Students (MACES). Students in short courses, seminars and workshops that are not recorded on the official McGill transcript are not assessed the MACES fee.
Career Advising and Transition Services charge: A flat fee is charged per term for Career Advising and Transition Services offerings.
McGill Writing Centre charge: A flat fee is charged for the McGill Writing Centre.
