Fees by residency status

The tuition fees vary according to the residence and citizenship status of the student.

The Quebec Government requires all students who are citizens or permanent residents of Canada to provide proof of their status in order not to be charged the international rate. In addition, students who wish to qualify for the Québec rate must also provide proof of Québec residency along with proof of Canadian citizenship. A list of categories of Québec residents who qualify for the Québec rate and the details regarding the procedures necessary to qualify, are available on the Legal Documents site. All required documents must be submitted within the timeframe indicated on the site

Students must report any changes to their status, and submit supporting documents to Enrolment Services. Requests must be submitted by the last day of classes of the same term that the change of status occurred. Documentation received after this time will affect fee rates for subsequent terms only. If proof of status is submitted after a student has been billed, but before the document submission deadline, the tuition supplement will be waived.

Students who are not automatically granted a fee deferral based on the University’s evaluation of their personal information at admission, who expect their fee residency status to change - and who will be providing that documentation - within the term must contact either Service Point at legaldocumentation [at] mcgill.ca or Student Accounts at student.accounts [at] mcgill.ca to discuss what documentation is still outstanding to support their situation. These offices will decide if a fee deferral is warranted. No prior interest charges or late payment fines will be reversed, therefore students should ensure their request is submitted prior to the first fee payment for the term is due.

The tuition rates for the 2018/2019 fall and winter terms can be found under Rates Information.
