Tuition Decision Freezes Fees for Most Students

Okanagan College Media Release - March 29, 2011

The Board decided to replicate a decision it made last year and freeze those tuition fees at Okanagan College that are more than 10 per cent above average for similar programs at other institutions.
“This is a student-centric decision that means that most of our students won’t be seeing increases for the coming year,” says Board Chair Lance Kayfish. “Where we are notably higher than other comparable institutions, we won’t be compounding that difference.”
Colleges have been bound by a provincial policy that limits tuition increases to the rate of inflation for each year. Okanagan College has only once chosen to raise all its tuition fees in the past five years. Indications are that the provincial policy will again limit increases to two per cent for 2011-12.
