Dalhousie to hike tuition

Fees to rise between 3% and 14%

Dalhousie University is expected to raise tuition by as much as 14 per cent. Responding to funding cuts from the provincial government that the university says leaves a $14.6 million hole in their budget, the Board of Governors is proposing to raise tuition across the board by three per cent, by 10 per cent for medicine and 14 per cent for dentistry. The board will vote on the increases next week. “It’s pretty much a given that the university, the board, will be approving the three per cent tuition increase on Tuesday” student union president Chris Saulnier told CBC News.
