Yukon College approves tuition increase

February 26, 2015

The board of governors at Yukon College has approved a 1.8% tuition increase for most programs. The increase will raise the price of a course credit from $112 to $114, with a full year of credit courses increasing by a maximum of $60 for students taking 5 courses per term. Yukon's culinary arts, renewable resources management, and practical nursing programs will not be subject to the increase. Tuition for trades pre-employment programs will increase by 13%, from $2,200 to $2,500 per course. Registrar Jennifer Moorlag said that the increase was made necessary by rising fixed costs of providing PSE. She noted, however, that the board of governors directed that tuition must not exceed that of the lowest one-third of comparable colleges in western Canada. Yukon News Release
