Dal approves new guaranteed tuition model, students decry steep increase for Fall 2023

Dalhousie University has approved a new guaranteed tuition model for international undergraduate students that would ensure students starting their programs in Fall 2023 would pay the same amount each year for up to five years of their studies. According to Dal, the proposal aims to better align fees with similar Canadian universities and make tuition more stable for students. The proposal also increases international tuition by an average of more than $7.2K a year, a move that some international students have spoken out against. Students told Global News that they already face high tuition, low wages, and high tax rates. Dal Student Union President Aparna Mohan stated that while guaranteed tuition is a step forward, the hikes harm international students.
