Implications of tuition changes

The Government of Quebec plans to increase tuition rates for students from outside Quebec starting in fall 2024. Understand whether these measures apply to you.

Who is affected

Effective fall 2024, new students from outside Quebec who plan on undertaking an undergraduate program (e.g. bachelor) or course-based/non-thesis (professional) master's-level program will be subject to higher fees.

Tuition for out-of-province students will be about $17,000 (up from $8,992).

Tuition for a small number of international students (those entering course-based/non-thesis (professional) master's programs) may increase. All other programs will remain under the existing tuition fee structure. Additional details to come.

Important note: if you are a new graduate student offered fall 2024 admission, Concordia will honour the tuition rate indicated in your offer letter.

Who is exempt?

If you start your studies after fall 2024, you will avoid the tuition increase if you:
