Northlands will cover books, tuition for NORTEP students, housing concerns remain

July 17, 2017

Northlands College has announced that it will pay for tuition and book expenses for the 51 transfer students who were previously funded by the Northern Teacher Education Program Council Inc. “Although we have recently been made aware of some of the decisions, the Northlands College Board feels that the waiting has gone on long enough, and what we are announcing today is the most that we can do to help the students at this time,” said Northlands board chair Deborah Charles. “We hope this reduces the stress they have been feeling.” CBC reports that student housing remains a concern for the transfer students. Saskatoon StarPhoenix | CBC
