The Okanagan College Board of Governors have adopted a proposal to raise tuition fees by two per cent in the coming year for both domestic and international students.

The decision was reached by the 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 approximately $64.26 per year, rising to $3,277.26.

For a student taking a six-month (24 week) electrical foundation program, tuition would increase by $50.72 to $2,586.56.
