Tuition fees to rise in accordance with provincial framework

UWindsor students will pay an average of three percent more in tuition this fall, in accordance with the four-year fee framework set out by the provincial government in March.

Domestic students in professional programs—business, computer science, engineering and law—will see increases of five percent for first-year entrants and four percent for students in course. Those in other undergraduate programs will experience a three percent increase.

However, those increases will be offset by a freeze in tuition for domestic students in graduate programs, with the exceptions of business and social work.

Most international student will experience an increase of four percent, with some variation by year and major of study.

The Board also approved increases in meal plan and residence fees at its April 30 meeting. See details of the 2013/14 fees in the schedules below:

The Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities announced the new tuition framework March 28, to provide stability and predictability to the sector. While it caps the average annual increase at three percent, it allows flexibility for institutions within the overall increase.
