Tuition increasing at OC

Okanagan College Media Release

Tuition will be increasing at Okanagan College in the coming year.

In accordance with provincial policy limiting tuition increases, the College’s Board of Governors has approved a two per cent increase for domestic students in the coming year.

Adult Basic Education courses and English as a Second Language courses remain tuition free for domestic students.

“The increase in tuition is one way we have to keep pace with the impact of inflation on our budget and support existing and additional services,” says Okanagan College Board Chair Chris Derickson.

For a Canadian student taking a full semester of five university arts lectures, the increase will add $34.10, increasing the semester’s tuition to $1,738.83.

Okanagan College’s budget will be finalized in the coming months.

“The Okanagan College Students’ Union has articulated some ways that we might consider using the additional tuition revenue to provide improved services and administration is looking closely at how the College can address those,” says Derickson.
