Financial Services


Tuition Fees

The Finance department assists students right from the beginning of their studies for any questions on the financing of their school fees.

 School fees vary according to the programs and the final price is communicated to the students once a contract is signed.

A detailed invoice will be given to the student during the first week of studies.  The students are obliged to pay by their balances by the deadlines provided in this invoice. Should these deadlines not be met, the school has the right to refuse the student from entering class.

Here are the different modes of payment:

• cash
• by credit card (Visa or Mastercard)
• by personal check
• certified check
• bank draft
• money order
• by pre-authorized payment (specimen check) or international wire for foreign students.

Program Of Financial Assistance

Quebec Residents

 Aviron Technical Institute of Montreal is an institution recognized by the  M.E.S.R.S.T. (ministère de l’Enseignement Supérieur, de la Recherche, de la Science et de la Technologie) for the Loans and Bursary Program offered by government of Quebec.
Students who are Quebec residents and whose financial resources are limited thus not allowing them to take one of our courses, may be accepted to the  financial assistance program.

You are eligible under the Loans and Bursaries Program if:

•  You are a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident, refugee or protected person within the meaning of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act
•  You are a Québec resident or deemed a Québec resident at the time of your application
•  You are or will be admitted to an educational institution recognized by the Minister
•  You are a full-time or deemed full-time student in a recognized program
•  You have not exceeded the number of months for which financial assistance may be awarded
•  You have not reached the debt limit established for your level of education, type of degree or program
•  You do not have sufficient financial resources to pursue your studies

Please note that you are not eligible for the Loans and Bursaries Program if you are serving a prison sentence. If you and your spouse are both students, only one of you may be deemed to be a full-time student in a given award year.

We suggest that you use the simulation calculation tool, which will give you a rough idea of the amounts that you can expect to receive and thus help you prepare a budget for your studies.
