MUN announces tuition increase in response to provincial budget cuts

June 2, 2021
Memorial University has announced that it will be increasing tuition in response to the reductions in the recently announced budget from the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. In addition to cuts, the $68M tuition fee revenue offset used to maintain MUN’s tuition freeze will reportedly be phased out over the course of five years. While MUN has said that tuition will not change for the 2021-22 academic year, the university will bring a proposal to the Board of Regents this summer regarding changes for September 2022. MUN is also temporarily not allowed to expand its campus while the institution and provincial government work to transition MUN to greater autonomy. CBC states that the pause could impact the Labrador School of Arctic and Sub-Arctic Studies. CBC | MUN (NL)
