Staff tuition policies

Staff Dependent Waivers

Students who are dependents of full-time McGill staff members may qualify for a staff dependent tuition waiver. Employees should contact the HR Service Centre at (514) 398-4747 for information regarding eligibility criteria. The Staff Dependent Tuition waiver policy can be found on the McGill Benefits site. The Staff Dependent Tuition Waiver form can be found here.

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and Revenu Québec consider the portion of tuition fees waived for employees' dependents should be recorded as taxable income to the student rather than the employee. This amount will be reported on T4A and RL-1 slips issued to the student. Further details regarding the Staff Dependent Waivers for administrative and support staff can be found here.
