How to Pay

A step-by-step guide to understanding and paying your tuition and fees.

When your tuition and fees are paid and a credit balance remains, you may be eligible for a refund.

How to pay

Students who are not a Canadian citizen, Permanent Resident, or a person registered as Indigenous within the meaning of the Indian Act, are assessed at the international fee rate (see Undergraduate Tuition Fees or Graduate Tuition Fees).

The Ministry of Colleges and Universities outlines a number of exemptions which may be applicable to some International students. Each of these cases must be examined individually by fee assessment staff in the Office of the University Registrar. Please visit our International Tuition Fee Status Change page for information on exemption categories and how to request an exemption.

Health Insurance Coverage

The university accepts no responsibility for uninsured medical expenses incurred by students or their dependents.

In Ontario, there are two different types of health insurance plans: primary and supplementary health insurance. When eligible, all students are encouraged to have coverage in both a primary and a supplementary health plan.

Provides coverage for physician services at clinics and hospitals in Ontario for both emergency and routine needs. In other Canadian locations, the plans provide emergency coverage only. Outside of Canada, the plans offer very limited coverage and should always be combined with a supplementary travel plan.

International Students

International students are required to have, and will automatically be charged for and enrolled in UHIP, the University Health Insurance Plan administered at Queen's Undergraduate International Centre (QUIC) that provides basic medical coverage for most doctor and hospital services in Ontario.

Watch your Queen's email for the message “UHIP - Action Required” or access proof of coverage, add dependents (residing in Ontario), and learn more about UHIP online.

Canadian Students

Canadian students from other provinces must inform their local Ministry of Health that they will be studying in Ontario.

Domestic students who have yet to establish coverage in a provincial/territorial health plan, returning Canadians, or new permanent residents are eligible to apply for OHIP, the Ontario Health Insurance Plan. If you need coverage during the OHIP waiting period, you can request short-term UHIP by email to (include your student number).

Provides a level of coverage for prescription medicine/vaccines, dental care, vision care (eye exam, glasses), physiotherapy, travel coverage, etc.

Your student government office provides a second level of insurance coverage for health costs not covered by a primary health plan.

If you are covered by a health and/or dental plan through a parent, spouse, or sponsor, you can opt out of the university plan by providing proof of coverage to the student insurance provider. Learn more on the Ancillary Fees page.
