Holland College increases tuition as part of college-wide fiscal measures
Monday, April 16, 2012
Charlottetown, PE - "The current fiscal climate has required the college to make some difficult decisions," said Dr. Brian McMillan, president of Holland College. "We have undergone a systematic review of all expenses and revenues. We have employed a balanced approach to cost reduction and revenue generation to ensure that our students continue to have access to the excellent learning environment to which they have become accustomed."
Holland College announced today that it will be increasing tuition for all full-time programs. The last tuition increase at the college was in 1998. Holland College has several tuition levels. The majority of its program tuitions fall into three primary bands that vary from $3,250 to $5,500 per year. In most cases, tuition increases will amount to $200 to $250 per program.
The tuition increase is one of a series of measures that included targeted reductions, across the board cuts to departmental budgets, and the suspension of two programs.
"Fiscal sustainability for our institution is critical to our future success so we must do our part to manage our budgets and make adjustments where necessary," said Dr. McMillan.
