Fees and Budgeting

 

Here is some information on the cost of a university education to help you plan your budget. Tuition fees are based on the number of credits per semester that you register for (e.g., 1 course = 3 credits). You can expect to pay annual increases in the basic fees, as well as supplemental tuition fees if you're a non-resident Canadian or international student. The total amount includes basic tuition, management fees, and technology and ancillary fees for various student services, as well as any additional fees depending on your status. Student fees, which vary by department, are also charged.

Tuition fees also vary if you opt for distance learning from outside Quebec. See distance learning tuition fees for more information.
