Tuition & aid

The John Molson graduate programs are some of the most affordable in North America because our tuition fees are highly subsidized by the Quebec government. In addition, the cost of living in Montreal is significantly lower than in most other large North American cities.

Program costs

Beyond program costs (such as books, stationery and supplies), students should budget for living expenses of at least $12,000 CDN per year. This figure is based on the standard needs of a single person and includes accommodation, groceries, clothing, public transportation and miscellaneous expenditures. Under collaborative agreements sanctioned by the governments of Quebec and France, citizens of France qualify to pay Quebec tuition fees.

The cost of books may vary significantly from one course to another. However, buying used books can significantly reduce this expense. Please visit the Concordia bookstore and enter the course number to view course materials and associated costs.
