Tuition and Fees

Tuition and fees due must be paid directly to the Qatar Foundation Finance Department. For tuition payment and any queries, please contact QF on its email address: 

It is important to note that Weill Cornell Medicine in Qatar (WCM-Q) neither issues invoices, nor collects tuition fees. However, it helps facilitate the payment process as requested by the Qatar Foundation (QF).

QF Finance will send tuition invoices and payment instructions to students directly by email around mid-October for the Fall semester and mid-February for the Spring semester. Students are required to pay tuition and fees due before the end of the invoiced semester.

Students enrolled in the Foundation, and the Premedical Programs will pay for all semesters of enrollment. Students in the medical program will pay tuition for eight full semesters (four academic years).However, students who exceed eight semesters of enrollment will still be required to pay relevant student fees for each additional semester in which they remain enrolled.
