Every term, HEC Montréal offers a number of differential tuition fee exemptions to international students registered in the MSc program. These exemptions lower the tuition fees to the level of those paid by students from Quebec. International students are eligible for this exemption and to its renewal during their first two (2) semesters of study. It could be renewed for the third semester, depending on available resources. A priority is given to students who are registered to 12 course-credits for the fall and winter terms and to 6 credit-courses for the summer term. Language courses and the 24-credit thesis activity are not included in this calculation. This exemption is not automatically renewed. The candidate must apply each term.

How to submit your application

- Differential Tuition Fee Exemption Online Form
- Any document certifying that you have applied without success for a differential tuition fee exemption to your country of citizenship when possible (email copy, letter of refusal, etc.)
- Copy of the Study permit
If the application is not submitted as required, it will be considered incomplete and could be rejected without notice.
- Students enrolled to the supervised project during the term in which the scholarship will be awarded must make sure their supervised project has been approved and submit the Approval for a credited supervised project with their application file.
- Due to the short delay between the application deadline, the Withdrawal with refund deadline, and the Final payment due date, to avoid any late fee you have to pay at least the equivalent of the regular tuition fees and other fees on September 13, 2018. The differential tuition fee could be paid within the next 10 following working days that the decision is communicated without penalty, if you do not obtain an exemption.
