Enrolled in certain French courses

Tuition reduction eligibility for certain French course(s) (based on your legal status in Canada).


To be eligible for an exemption from the out-of-province tuition supplement for the eligible French course(s) in which you are currently enrolled, you must:

  1. Be a Canadian student (i.e. have proven Canadian citizenship or Permanent Residency);
  2. Be registered in an eligible French course(s). Refer to the international fee exemptions page for the comprehensive PDF lists of courses by term.

No additional documents are required from students to claim the exemption. The fee system will automatically calculate the credit and reflect the accurate assessment in your fee account. Note that this exemption is only applied to the tuition supplement for the eligible French course in which you are enrolled; your tuition and fees for the balance of your course registration in the term will remain unaltered.

*** Please check the class schedule in Minerva to ensure courses on the list of eligible courses are open for registration.


  • Students who are in programs where the fees are charged on a flat rate basis (such as thesis programs) and who take French courses as part of their program will not benefit from any reduction in fees. Students taking French courses (that are eligible for reduction) that are taken as extra to their program will be charged applicable fees at the Quebec rate as long as they are considered full-time. Students should consult with their department in order to determine if such courses are part of their program or deemed to be extra.
  • Students enrolled in such self-funded programs as the following (not an exhaustive list): International Masters Program in Practicing Management, International Masters for Health Leadership, Management International Summer Program, Distance programs in the Certificates in Educational Leadership, Masters of Business Administration, Executive Masters of Business Administration, Certificate Craniofacial Orthodontics, Graduate Certificate International Leadership in Educational & Administrative Development, Graduate Certification Aviation Leadership, Masters in Management Analytics, Master of Public Policy
