Memorial University commented on the decision by the provincial
government regarding a tuition freeze at the university.
John Ottenheimer, the minister responsible for post-secondary
education, made the tuition announcement on Feb. 11.
The university and the provincial government agree that
any freeze would not extend to international undergraduate
students. “Memorial announced increases in international
undergraduate student fees last year, and those changes
will remain in effect,” said Dr. Meisen, Memorial’s
Dr. Georgina Hedges, acting chair of the Board of Regents,
said, “The university looks forward to discussing
with government over the coming weeks the future budget
of the university to ensure the quality and diversity of
its programs and ways Memorial can assist the province with
its development and financial difficulties.”
