UWinnipeg students face 3.7% tuition hike

May 9, 2019

CBC has learned that students at the University of Winnipeg will pay an average of $120 more for tuition in the 2019-20 school year. The increase follows a 1% cut to the university’s operating grant. CBC adds that the government implemented a 0.9% cut in its previous budget. Mahlet Cuff, VP of External Affairs for the University of Winnipeg Students' Association, said she would like to see the province boost funding so that students do not have to pay more out-of-pocket. The university told CBC the extra tuition will go toward improving student services and supports, including an additional $50K in bursaries. CBC (MB)
