A fee of $12.99 per course is collected from each student by the University 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 members of MACES and are not assessed the MACES fee.
- The MACES fee does not apply to students who are already members of the McGill Student's Society, except in certain cases where the student is in more than one program. For further information about MACES, see Student Governance: McGill Association of Continuing Education Students (MACES).
The University charges a number of administrative fees to students in credit courses and programs which include:
Registration Charge - All students are assessed a registration fee.
Information Technology Charge - The purpose of the information technology fee is to enhance certain technology services provided to students as well as to provide training and support to students in the use of new technology.
Transcripts and Diploma Charge - The University charges a transcripts and diploma fee to all students which entitles you to order transcripts free of charge as well as covers the costs of your graduation.
Copyright Fee - All students in courses and programs are charged the copyright fee which covers the cost of the annual fee that all Quebec universities are required to pay to Copibec (a consortium that protects the interests of authors and editors) for the right to photocopy materials protected by copyright.
General Administrative Charge - As per the Quebec government’s regulation on administrative fee increases, students are assessed $15.00 in the Summer term and a total of $30 for the Fall and Winter terms to cover indexation for the Registration Charge, the Information Technology Charge, Transcripts and Diploma Charge, and the Copyright Fee.
