Tuition fees

Tuition fees are mandatory fees that are charged by the University for education and instruction. They vary according to the student’s status (full-time or part-time), level of education (undergraduate or graduate), program of study and legal status in Canada.

International students studying in French can be eligible for a differential tuition fee exemption.

Incidental fees

Incidental fees are related to student activities, services and associations. Examples include student federation and association fees, insurance fees or student services fees (Health Services, Sports and University Centre fees). They vary by level of study (undergraduate or graduate), by faculty and, in some cases, by department. Please note that in certain cases, incidental fees are not applied.

Ancillary fees

Ancillary fees are fees which students pay for specific courses in addition to tuition. Examples include field trips, learning materials, and special clothing and material students use to create items during class, both of which they keep.

Administrative fees

Administrative fees are charged for specific administration–related services. Examples include admission‑related fees (file evaluation, entrance examinations, audition fees), documentation fees (transcripts, diplomas, student card replacement) and registration–related fees (late registration and late payment fees). Administrative fees are charged on a per service basis.
