King’s offers three waivers—a post care tuition waiver available to former youth-in-care, a Mi’kmaw Journalism Cohort for Mi’kmaw students and a senior citizens waiver available to Canadian citizens or permanent residents, 65 years of age.
The University of King’s College is committed to the work of Reconciliation and creating an environment where Indigenous students, staff and faculty can thrive. With this waiver, tuition costs will be covered for up to three Mi’kmaw students per year in the Bachelor of Journalism (Honours) program and encourage L’nu’k from Mi’kma’ki with lived experience to apply.
King’s offers two Post-Care Tuition Waivers annually to former youth-in-care for undergraduate studies at King’s. This comes in recognition of the unique and ongoing challenges faced by former youth-in-care in accessing and completing a post-secondary education.
These waivers are renewable (up to four years dependent upon good academic standing) for each student’s first undergraduate degree at King’s.
Current undergraduate students or incoming students who meet the eligibility criteria and have been accepted into an undergraduate program that begins in September can apply for the waiver through the application below by March 1.
Canadian citizens or permanent residents, 65 years of age or over who are enrolled in an undergraduate non-professional degree program in Arts, Social Sciences or Science, will have their tuition fees waived but must pay applicable incidental fees. Students must notify the Student Accounts Office on or before the term due date to have the waiver initiated.
