For aviation students

For students intending to major in Aviation.

First-year students pay Mount Allison tuition and fees only.

Once your ground school and flight training begins (typically in your second year), your tuition is a blend of Mount Allison tuition and MFC Training tuition.

All flight training takes place at the MFC Training campus in Dieppe, an easy 25-minute drive from Sackville. You're required to provide your own transportation between the two campuses. This is not included in your tuition and fees.
