RMCC Academic Fees

"As an institution of the Federal Government the Royal Military College of Canada must abide by regulations stipulated by the Treasury Board of Canada. RMCC was recently advised that its tuition fee structure was not in compliance with Treasure Board policies pertaining to the provision of just and equitable services for employees of the Public Service of Canada. Consequently, all tuition and academic fees related to the conduct of academic services have been adjusted to comply with Treasury Board Regulations."

RMCC Academic Year 2014-2015 Fees (Effective 01 September 2014)

The Royal Military College of Canada (RMCC) reserves the right to make changes, without notice, in the published scale of fees. If fee changes are approved after publication deadlines, every effort will be made to notify students affected. However, lack of notification does not exempt a student from paying the appropriate fee. Changes to the fee tables are normally made at the end of the winter term and applied to the subsequent fall term.

Tuition fees are payable by credit card (VISA, MasterCard or Amex), debit card, certified cheque, money order or cash. Certified cheques and money orders must be made payable to: Receiver General for Canada. Please note that personal cheques will not be accepted as a method of payment.

Any student with an overdue debt with RMCC will not be permitted to register until the outstanding amount is paid in full. A student with a debt cannot obtain an official transcript, student summary or diploma.

For questions concerning your T2202A, or other financial questions, contact the Financial Manager at 613-541-6000 ext. 6692. The tuition payment office is located in Mackenzie Building, Room 254.
