Penalties

For late registration:

  • undergraduates: $25
  • in graduate studies: $100

Changes to the Invoice

Your invoice will be amended only if the number of credits differs as a result of a change of choice of courses, even if you change program. You must therefore, at all times, pay the minimum balance on your first invoice or contact the Office of the Registrar to confirm the amount owing and avoid the $25 penalty.

Refund

Are you owed a refund of your tuition fees? Contact the Registrar’s Office:

To obtain a refund of an amount owed to you on your school account, make a request by email to accueilregistraire@etsmtl.ca.

The email must be sent from the personal e-mail address listed in your file. Be sure to include your:

  • Name;
  • Permanent code;
  • Complete mailing address (civic number, street name, city and postal code).

The cheque will be mailed to you. Expect a delay of two to three weeks before receiving it.
