Exemption from Differential Fees for International Students


If you are an international student, a differential fee will be added to your tuition. To benefit from a fee exemption, granted to a limited number of students, you must submit your exemption request to the organization responsible for managing exemptions for your home country.

You can learn about this on the Ministère de l'Éducation et de l'Enseignement supérieur du Québec (MEES) website, through the Exemption from Differential Tuition Fees.

The list of students who have been granted exemptions is sent to us by the MEES at the beginning of each semester.

Ph.D. students

All students registered in the doctoral program at Polytechnique Montréal are exempted from the differential fees.

  • Note: For bresilian candidates who obtained a scholarship from "Sciences without borders", the amount of this exemption is included in the scholarship allowed to the student.

master's students

A limited number of differential fees is also available for master's students.
Students must submit their application to the Registrar's Office by completing the form: Exemption des droits de scolarité majorés pour les étudiants étrangers à la maîtrise recherche (.doc) (.pdf) (available in French only).
