The education ministry’s Programme d’exemption des droits de scolarité supplémentaires (program for the exemption of supplemental tuition fees) allows some foreign students to be exempted from extra tuition fees and thus pay the same amount as a Québec student.
Under cooperation agreements and bilateral accords signed between the Government of Quebec, foreign governments and international organizations, an exemption from supplemental fees is granted to a predefined number of students. This number is determined by a quota allocated to foreign governments and international organizations who have signed an agreement.
The student must submit an application. For eligibility criteria and the list of eligible countries and international organizations, see the website of the ministère de l'Éducation et de l'Enseignement supérieur.
