Information regarding student fees

Posted on January 26, 2016

A document outlining proposed student fees was brought to the college’s Fees Committee on Jan. 18, as is standard practice. This document was a draft and intended for discussion purposes only. Any copies of this document that have been distributed must not be considered final as it has not yet been presented to the VCC Board of Governors.

VCC is responsible to ensure the 2016-17 budget is balanced. Any proposed student fees must be considered along with all other budget initiatives before being finalized.

 

 Facts:

  • As the draft fees are not complete at this time, they will not go to the January VCC Board of Governors meeting. 
  • The college reviews student fees annually as part of the budgeting process.
  • One of the fees proposed is a $26 student activity fee. All monies collected would go towards enhancing student life through campus activities. This initiative is the result of past requests by VCC students and is common to many other institutions.
  • VCC is following the government tuition increase limit policy of two per cent per year.
