News Archives: Tuition at GPRC Increases by 0.35%
Released: Friday, February 25th, 2011
The GPRC Board of Governors yesterday approved an increase of 0.35% in tuition fees for GPRC courses.
The approved GPRC tuition increase of 0.35% is the allowable increase in accordance with the Public Post-Secondary Institutions' Tuition Fee Regulation. The allowable increase is based on the increase of the average monthly Alberta Consumer Price Index for June 2009/2010 over June2008/2009.
"Alberta Advanced Education and Technology has established the maximum allowable increase," says Don Gnatiuk, President and CEO, "and we have increased tuition fees by exactly that amount. Our students are not being asked to bear the economic burden of current financial realities - and our students have told us they support and appreciate this decision."
