Fee Descriptions Most fees are described on the Student Accounts website: www.mcgill.ca/student-accounts/tuition-fees/fee-descriptions Tuition Rates and Fee Status

Undergraduate tuition is billed per credit, based on your status as a Quebec resident, out-of-province Canadian, International student, or International Fee Exemption. Tuition rates can be found on the Tuition and Fees pages of our website, including an easy to use fee calculator. CGEP students will normally have their residency status directly updated through an electronic file transfer from their CGEP. Please confirm in Minerva that this has been updated. Legal documents website: www.mcgill.ca/legaldocuments The University will endeavor to identify students who are being charged a higher rate of tuition (International or Canadian Out-of-Province) than what they claimed in their admissions information, and defer interest on the difference between what they are being charged now, and what they will be charged once their legal documents are submitted to Enrolment Services. You will be notified by email that we have done this. NOTE: Should your status change and results in a reduction of tuition fees, any

late payment charges or interest that accumulates on the difference will be reversed. View Tuition Fee and Legal Status Found on the Student Accounts menu in Minerva International Health Insurance Mandatory health insurance for International students ($906 single coverage in 2015/16) Very few exemptions, but if you think you qualify you have until Sept 30,

The easiest way, Internet Banking from Canadian bank accounts!

Set up McGill University as a new payee with your McGill student ID is your account number. Guests should enter the students ID, not their Guest ID. If you dont feel comfortable using online banking, you can still set up the bill with a teller at the bank, and then pay through the teller or an ATM. Payments take 1-3 business days to be received by McGill. Do not pay by credit card, as it will be taken as a cash advance. 16 How to Pay?

17 e-Payment through Minerva e-Payment Options (cont) How to Pay (cont) Alternatives (cont) Western Union GlobalPay for International Students Get quote through Western Union website Enter Canadian dollar amount to pay and the currency you want to pay it in.

Pay by wire at the bank within 72 hours of getting quote McGill receives funds 2-6 business days later Notes: May be considered a domestic money transfer, so limited bank charge. No charges by McGill or Western Union. The reference number from the quote must always be included in the wire payment. You need a new quote for each payment, never re-use a previous quote. If your currency is not listed, you can contact Student Accounts for alternative payment methods.

How to Pay (cont) Not exactly recommended but possible Print your e-bill and send it with a cheque to the Student Accounts office. Disadvantages slow and will take longer to appear on your account. Allow at least 3 working days once the payment is received by the office to process the payment. Hence 5 days in the mail + 3 days to process = 8 days before payment is credited!
