How can I pay my tuition fees?
You can pay your tuition fees by Visa or MasterCard credit card, by bank transfer to the Collège Supérieur de Montréal or by direct withdrawals.*

I am an international student. Can I start my program online while waiting for flights to Canada to resume?
Yes, it is possible to start your studies online now. Once the student has completed the registration formalities and payment of the fees, he obtains confirmation of his registration and receives his acceptance letter from the Collège Supérieur de Montréal (CSM). The student can then begin its studies online at the same time as he completes its request for a Quebec Acceptance Certificate (CAQ) and for which the response time is approximately 4 to 6 weeks. He can thus complete up to 50% of his training online before arriving in Quebec.
Will my online training be as valid as if I had taken the courses in person?
Absolutely. Given the situation, online training will be recognized as if you were in the classroom.
Once isolation measures are lifted, will courses continue both online and in person or will the remainder of my session be finished online?
Once isolation measures are lifted and it is safe for our students to attend in person, classroom instruction will resume.
