With recent news of the University’s proposed tuition hikes for international students, the Students’ Union and the ISSS are working to inform and encourage all students to voice their opinions regarding this issue.
- The University of Alberta is proposing to increase international student tuition by $1000 starting next year.
- The decision will be made at a meeting of the Board of Governors from 8:00-10:00 AM on December 13th, in 2-31 South Academic Building. We encourage all students, international or not, to attend this meeting to hold our governors accountable for their decisions.
- The SU and the ISSS oppose tuition increases for all students, especially when used to cope with poor budgeting. If the University decides to raise tuition fees, more funds should allocated to support international students through services and bursaries.
