US neighbour fee for American students reinforces international connection

As a good-neighbour gesture across the border, the University of Windsor will offer American students a tuition fee of $5,000 per semester beginning September 2013—a savings of up to $5,000 per semester compared to the international fees American students were previously paying.

The U.S. Neighbour Fee approved by the Board of Governors at its April 30 meeting applies only to first-year undergraduate students who apply for any program except law. The fee for American students recognizes the large proximal population directly to the north of the UWindsor campus.

President lays out path for University

In a community address Tuesday, UWindsor president Alan Wildeman looked to the institution’s past and its future.

He noted that this year will mark the 50th anniversary of the University of Windsor and the 233rd anniversary of the transfer from the Wyandot nation to the Jesuit priests of the land on which the campus now stands.

“Every one of us is on the same path that the Wyandot chiefs and the Jesuits laid down 233 years ago,” Dr. Wildeman said. “And now, as it did then, that same path still stretches before us.”
