Student protest postpones NSCADU tuition fee vote

November 30, 2015

The NSCAD University board of governors was forced to delay its decision on an alleged tuition hike of 37% over three years after a reported 100 students gathered outside the meeting room. NSCADU’s Board of Governors confirmed that they planned to consider a one-time market adjustment for tuition at the meeting. The student group was allowed to participate in the meeting, but was asked to leave when the issue of tuition rates arose and when the vote took place. Student Union councilor Grace Stratton said, “they called it a conflict of interest. It was really unacceptable. So we refused to leave.” The meeting was adjourned without a vote taking place.
