Most students going to Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) this fall will see a hike in tuition.
On Thursday, NSCC announced their tuition rates for 2015/16, which include a three per cent increase for most programs.
“I know any increase makes a difference for our students. This additional revenue will help us to continue to provide high-quality programming that supports student success for years to come,” NSCC president Don Bureaux said in a release.
The province has capped tuition increases at three per cent for the past few years in post-secondary education institutions.
For most students, the three percent increase adds up to an extra $90 in annual tuition costs.
Full-time core tuition will go from $3,040 to $3,130, advanced diplomas from $4,650 to $4,790, academic and career connections from $1,255 to $1,290, and international fees from $9,800 to $10,090.
Tuition for Recording Arts, Health Information Management, Certified Welding, Gas Technician, Heavy Equipment Operator, Process Operations 4th Class, and Aviation Programs (Avionics, Mechanical and Structures) programs will not go up.
