Student Services Fee

McGill students have full access to a wide range of Student Services upon payment of their Students Services Fee. This fee  is  automatically charged every fall and winter term*  to the student fee account of:

  • Undergraduate students
  • Graduate students
  • Certain postdoctoral fellows

You can view current amounts for Student Services and other fees on the Student Accounts website.

*Graduate Students registered in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences have their fees charged every fall term.

Continuing Studies Students

Students who are in Continuing Studies and taking 9 credits or more can choose to pay an optional Student Services fee, subject to taxes (GST & PST). Opting in allows access to the same services as undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows.  To opt-in, please complete Application Form.  Processing time is 5-7 days.   

While the optional fee provides access to  Scholarships & Student Aid's services and tools,  it does not provide access to monetary resources like financial aid and awards.

Summer Term Access

Students who have paid the winter term fee are eligible for Student Services during the summer term  only if they are registered for summer or fall courses. This includes access to the Student Wellness Hub.


Students who withdraw have access to student services until the date on which they withdraw. Once a student has withdrawn, they no longer have access to student services as they are no longer an active student.

Transitioning in and out of studies

Services are only available to students currently enrolled in a program of study. Services for students who are not currently enrolled—including students on authorized leaves of absence—are limited to certain services mandated by government regulation and services that help a student transition back into or out of their studies (examples include connecting a student with services off-campus and government financial aid or immigration advising for students leaving or preparing for re-entry).

Other Fees

Students must also pay Student Society fees, Athletics and Recreation fees, and other charges. Information about these non-tuition related charges can be found at Student Accounts.

Opting Out

McGill employees who wish to opt-out of the Student Services fee may request to do so only if they are eligible for McGill's Tuition Assistance program. If you meet this requirement, please fill out the Application for Reimbursement of Student Services and/or Athletics and Recreation Fees, and send the completed form to stuservfees.s2 [at]
