Tuition is rising 3.7 percent at the University of Winnipeg for undergrad students beginning next school year.

The university’s board of regents approved the $144 million 2019-20 budget on Monday night, which includes the tuition increase for most programs.

According to the university, the increase works out to be $120 more for the average student ($168 for a student taking five full courses).

Graduate students will see their tuition rise by 2.5 percent for most programs.

Highlights of the budget include:

  • An additional $50,000 for bursaries to students with financial need

  • More resources for the International Student Services Centre
  • Investments in faculty renewal
