Tuition Fees

You must pay your tuition fees each semester by determined deadlines, in order to avoid financial penalties.

Fall 2020 Semester

For this semester, on an exceptional basis, you can enter into a payment agreement with the Finance Service, which will enable you to register for the Winter 2021 semester once the agreement is finalized (please note that it will not be possible to enter into a payment agreement if the amount owing is less than $500). Fill the payment agreement request form (no later than October 26, 2020).

Regardless of whether you make a payment agreement or not, your file will not be frozen and you will be able to complete your Fall semester and take your exams.

Therefore, in order to register for the Summer 2021 semester, you must have paid all outstanding fees and 50% of the fees for the Winter semester by February 23, 2021 (the opening date for registration for classes for the Summer semester) at the latest.

Students who are experiencing financial difficulties can contact Student Services for advice concerning the various options available with respect to financial resources.

How to make payments

IMPORTANT: Please note that, if you are paying your tuition frees at a banking institution, you must take into account the 3- to 4-day processing delay before ÉTS will receive the payment. In light of this, you should plan to make your payment a few days in advance of the deadline.
Payment is applied first to any balance from previous semesters. Always indicate your permanent code as a reference in your correspondence.

(Room A-1120, between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
