Okanagan College will be raising tuition for domestic students by two per cent in the coming year.
International student tuition will increase by five per cent.
The decision was made by the College’s Board of Governors on Tuesday, and follows policy set by the provincial government which limits fee increases to that amount.
For a university transfer arts student taking a full load of lecture courses, the increase will amount to about $65.28 per year, rising to $3,342.54.
For a student taking a six-month (24-week) electrical foundation program, tuition would increase by $51.73 to $2,638.29.
A year’s arts tuition for an international student will increase to $12,978 from $12,360.
Meantime, Connie Denesiuk of Summerland has been re-elected as the chair of the college’s Board of Governors.
Chris Derickson has been re-elected to the position of vice chair.
