This chart provides an estimate of what you can expect to pay for one academic year (from September to the end of April) as an undergraduate student at McGill.

The fees listed below are for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Your living costs will depend on where you choose to live, and how much you spend on things like entertainment and eating out.
If you live off campus, you might need to factor in things like transportation, internet, heating and electricity. Residences are a great choice for first-year students who don’t want to worry about these added costs.
