Student calls new MRU registration fee an “obstacle”

April 3, 2019

Mount Royal University’s new $250 course registration fee should have been communicated sooner, Policy Studies student Tala Abu Hayyaneh recently told CBC. The university announced that students could register for a full year, or two semesters, at once, but would need to pay a $125 fee for each semester at the time of registration. Hayyaneh said that although the ability to apply ahead of time was a “relief,” she did not have enough time to come up with the money. MRU Communications Director Andrea Ranson noted that the university could have communicated the change more clearly. CBC (AB)
