CNC board approves two per cent tuition hike

The College of New Caledonia board has approved a two per cent domestic tuition and mandatory fees increase for the 2019/2020 academic year on Friday. 

The board also approved a motion that funds from the two per cent increase be put directly towards the support and development of students.

A report released by the provincial government, found at https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/education-training/post-secondary-education/data-research/cost-of-post-secondary-education, shows a two per cent annual increase for domestic tuition is standard for colleges in British Columbia.

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

CNC Board Chair Gil Malfair also provided the board with an update on the status of CNC’s presidential search.

Since CNC President Henry Reiser announced his plans to retire at the end of his term in June 2019, a presidential search committee has formed and held its first meeting on Nov. 9. Developments throughout the presidential search will continue to be posted to cnc.bc.ca/about/presidentialsearch
