Increases in funding rates

Budget 2016 included targeted increases to SAC tuition rates at degree-level and above for science, agriculture and horticulture, and veterinary science, as well as an increase for undergraduate medicine. It also increased all sub-degree rates (for SAC Level 3 and above) by 2%.

Specifically:

  • Science [#18]: degree-level and above has increased by approximately 5% for funding categories V2-V4
  • Agriculture and Horticulture [#01] and Large Animal Science [#39]: degree-level and above has increased by approximately 16% for funding categories H2-H4.
  • Undergraduate Medicine: the rate for years 2-3 [#15] has been aligned with the rate for years 4-6 [#37].
  • Veterinary Science: the rates for all veterinary science have been aligned, and are now funded at the same rate.
  • Sub-degree tuition rates: the level 1 categories for sub-degree tuition have been increased by 2%, aligning most with the degree-level rate:

      -  funding categories A1, B1, C1, I1, J1, L1, and N1 have been aligned with the A2, B2, C2, I2, J2, L2, and N2 rates, and

      -  funding categories M1, P1, S1, and V1 have been increased by 2%.
