Future animal doctors are facing the highest tuition increase at the University of Saskatchewan next fall, but prospective dentists and engineers won’t have to pay more.
Tuition for the veterinary medicine program is going up five per cent in the 2016-17 academic year to just over $9,000.
Dentistry students will continue to pay almost $33,000 and tuition for the faculty of engineering will hold steady at just over $8,000.
The average tuition increase for all departments is 2.5 per cent.
The numbers do not include student fees.
The Saskatchewan university’s board of governors approved the increases in December.
