These rights vary from one program to another. For example, in 2015-2016, fees for a full-time semester in a public CEGEP varied between CAN$5,682 and CAN$8,808. Added to this are admission and registration fees, health and hospitalization insurance, teaching materials, etc.

basic fees (equivalent to those paid by Quebec students), i.e. CAN$2,293.50 in 2015-2016 for a student enrolled in full-time,
a lump sum for foreign students, ranging from CAN$10,731.90 to CAN$13,864.50 depending on the cycle (1st, 2nd or 3rd) in 2015-2016 for a student enrolled full-time,

Fee exemption for French students

Quebec and France have signed an agreement on tuition fees for French students in the province. Thus, thanks to this initiative of the two governments, all French students pay the same basic fees and lump sums as Canadian students who are not residents of Quebec.

Several categories of people may be exempted from the lump sum for foreign students, such as refugees holding a Québec selection certificate (CSQ).

For example, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Ivory Coast, Senegal, China, Mexico, etc. belong to these countries. There is a maximum number of exemptions (quotas) per country.
