'We are not cash cows': University international student association - JURIS GRANEY, Edmonton Journal

For thousands of international students studying at the U of A — about 4,200 undergraduate and around 2,400 graduate-level enrolments — life is going to get a little bit harder after the board of governors agreed Dec. 17 to a 3.02-per-cent increase in international tuition fees starting in fall 2017. The move is expected to rake in an extra $2.4 million. Last year, foreign students in total paid about $100 million to study at the university and it means international undergraduate students will see an arts and science undergraduate degree go from $20,395 to $21,009 a year, while a business degree will go from $26,827 to $27,636. http://edmontonjournal.com/news/local-news/we-are-not-cash-cows-university-international-student-association-unhappy-with-latest-tuition-increase
