UNB budget to include a 5% tuition increase with 3% rebate for NB students

May 27, 2016

The University of New Brunswick’s 2016-17 budget includes a 5% tuition increase that comes in response to a two-year funding freeze from the provincial government. UNB President Eddy Campbell announced in a news release that, “UNB, like other universities in the region, has faced considerable challenges, and difficult yet necessary decisions had to be made in developing this year's budget.” Students from NB will receive a 3% tuition rebate, leaving out-of-province and international students to be most affected by the increase. The new budget also includes an increase in scholarship and student aid funding and a non-salary spending freeze on items other than scholarships, library acquisitions, and other critical procurements.
