Paying fees

Tuition Fees

Tuition fees are established in accordance with the Tuition Fee Framework of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. Tuition fees support the cost of academic program delivery and the general operations of the College. This framework allows for tuition fee differentiation based on program and program year. International tuition* quoted includes the International Student Recovery fee of $375.00 per semester.

*Indigenous Students with US citizenship are eligible for domestic tuition. Contact us for more information.

The attached chart outlines administrative fees that are assessed on a per-service basis.

Ancillary Fees

Ancillary fees, established and administered by a college, are fees that a student is required to pay in addition to tuition in order to successfully complete any course or program. Examples of fees established by St. Lawrence include Student ID card fee, Official Document fee, and Student Athletics and Recreation fee. Certain fees are program-specific, such as the Pre-Service Firefighter fee and the Technology fee for Computer Programmer Analyst and Computer Networking and Technical Support.

St. Lawrence College also administers ancillary fees on behalf of the Student Associations - for example, Student Union Building fees, and Student Insurance.
