Tuition Fees

In order to avoid financial penalties, you must pay your tuition fees for each session by the pre-determined deadlines

IMPORTANT

To register for the Winter 2024 session, you must have paid all outstanding fees and at least 50% of your tuition fees of the Fall 2023 session. Remember that the issuing of your diploma is conditional upon payment of all tuition fees.

Please note that, if you are paying your tuition fees at a banking institution, you should take into account the 3- to 4-day processing time for ÉTS to receive the payment. In light of this, you should plan to make your payment a few days before the deadline.

Students who are experiencing financial difficulties can contact Office of Student Life for advice related to budget planning.
