STU increases tuition by 3% plus $170

June 3, 2014

St Thomas University is the latest Canadian PSE institution to raise tuition for its undergraduate students. Tuition will go up 3% plus $170, or about $357 per year for domestic students in the Bachelor of Arts, Education, and Social Work programs. This brings STU’s tuition to about $5,552, still the lowest in New Brunswick. International students’ tuition will increase $187, and their health plan fee will go up $173. The tuition increase is consistent with an agreement between STU and the provincial government, which set a schedule of annual increases of no more than 3% plus $170 until 2017–18 to bring STU’s fee increase in line with the provincial average. The university expects to finish 2013–14 with a balanced budget. STU News Release | CBC
