The University of Saskatchewan Board of Governors has approved the tuition rates for the 2012-13 academic year, according to an email distributed to students April 16 by the Office of the Provost.
The email outlined that for the next academic year, “undergraduate and graduate tuition rates will rise by an overall average of 4.4 per cent. Tuition level increases will vary by program, but most programs will see an increase of 4.2 per cent or less. Student fees for 2012-13 have also been approved.”
Tuition rates, which are reviewed annually by the Board of Governors, are set according to three principles:
- “comparability to similar programs at other medical-doctoral universities;
- accessibility and affordability, so as not systematically to exclude large groups of potential students; and,
- the quality of our programs, and the need to ensure our students receive a high-quality education.”
A full breakdown of the tuition rate increase was included in the email, a copy of which can be found below.
