Tuition Freeze Announcement

We received some great news this week!

The Government of Alberta has announced that it will extend the tuition freeze until 2018. Market modifiers, which were increases that we fought against, and mandatory non-instructional fees will also continue to be frozen. Another encouraging sign is that they will be reviewing tuition fees for international students. This is important as international tuition is currently unregulated.

Upon hearing the news, Arshit Dhingra, SABVC President, stated that, “This is wonderful news for students in Alberta as it will help them afford post-secondary education.”
