On Thursday, March 21st, the SFU Board of Governors will hold its Final Budget Vote, to either approve or reject the Administration’s proposed tuition increases. These hikes in tuition will hit every single student at SFU, from a 2% increase for domestic students–the maximum allowable by law–to 20% for many incoming international students. Meet us in Maggie Benston Centre 2296 between 7:00 and 8:00 am for a Pancake Breakfast for students and allies provided by SFSS, or at the Halpern Centre at 8:00 am for the Final Budget Vote. SFU Tuition Freeze Now is a coalition of undergrads, grad students, domestics, and internationals who have been fighting to stop these tuition hikes since they were first announced in October 2018.
