Tuition fees increasing at the College of New Caledonia

A two per cent increase is standard for most colleges in B.C.

The College of New Caledonia’s (CNC) board of governors approved a two per cent increase to the 2018/19 tuition and mandatory fees last week.

According to the college, the increase is a direct response to continued cost pressures, and is necessary to cover the college’s fixed costs.

“CNC remains the second lowest tuition at a B.C. college for a full-time academic arts program student,” said CNC president Henry Reiser.

According to a report released by the provincial government, a two per cent increase is standard for most colleges in British Columbia.

The board made this decision during a meeting at CNC’s Prince George campus on Nov. 24, 2017.
