Camosun board approves student tuition

The Board of Governors at Camosun College has approved a two per cent tuition increase for domestic students, and a 3.4 per cent increase for international student tuition.

The increase to international tuition is below the current inflation and reflects prudent cost management. The focus of the college remains on the delivery of high-quality relevant, innovative and applied education with supports and services so all students succeed.

The Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills has a tuition limit policy of two per cent annually for domestic student but leaves international tuition increases to the discretion of individual colleges and universities. For the past four years at Camosun, international tuition has increased annually by two per cent.

A five-year plan will make it easier for international students to budget for the full cost of their education. The change takes effect in September 2024.

Camosun College has around 1,700 international students from over 70 countries, representing approximately 18 per cent of its student population.
