Nova Scotia Community College has announced that it will waive tuition for learners who have previously spent time in care through the Post-Care Free Tuition Program. Eligible students will have up to 100% of their tuition and fees covered. “At NSCC, we’re committed to building accessibility and inclusion into everything we do,” said NSCC President Don Bureaux. “By eliminating barriers to education in this way, we’re opening up a world of possibilities and ensuring that all Nova Scotians have the opportunity to move successfully into training and the workforce.” NSCC says it is the first college in Atlantic Canada to waive tuition for students who have previously been in care.
