Tuition is going up at the University of Saskatchewan.
An average tuition hike of 4.8 percent has been made by the University meaning it will cost for most students at the Saskatoon campus a total of $7.065 for two terms not counting student fees. That is an increase of about 300 dollars.
Last year, tuition went up 2.3 percent.
“These rates were determined through broad consultation across campus and with our students,” Provost Tony Vanelli said in a statement.
“Setting tuition is a complex process, but as is always the case at our university, that process is guided by principles of comparability, affordability and accessibility for our students and their families, and to ensure the quality of our programs.”
