Financial Assistance for International Students
Bishop’s does not offer loans, bursaries or financial aid (based on financial need) to international students. International students will automatically be considered for academic scholarships throughout their studies at Bishop’s based on academic merit.
Tuition Fee Exemptions
Students of French citizenship pay out-of-province fees rather than international fees.

Exemption from Differential Tuition Fees
A limited number of international students from countries with which Québec has signed an agreement on tuition fees are exempt from the differential tuition fees they would normally have to pay. They therefore pay the same fees as Québec students. However, these students are still required to pay other registration-related fees, including miscellaneous fees, fees for course materials, student association fees, health insurance and hospital insurance premiums. For more information about this program, international students should contact the authorities of their country.

Financial Assistance for Exchange Incoming Students
Financial assistance for most exchange students is limited. However, exchange students who have a valid C.A.Q and Study Permit may apply for work on campus. Note that on-campus jobs may be limited and difficult to secure. For more information, go to the Career & Leadership Development center on campus located in the Student Union Building.
