Keyano College offering continued assistance to Ukrainian refugees

Keyano College is continuing its support for people who have fled from the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Keyano is extending their tuition reduction for refugees coming to the region under the Canada Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET).

Students who have a study permit under this program will be allowed to pay the domestic tuition rate at the school, rather than the international student tuition.

In a media release, the College says students under the CUAET program can begin their studies once they have obtained a valid study permit. Approved study permits under the CUAET are valid for up to three years, giving students time to successfully complete their chosen programs.

Laura Herweck, the Manager of Enrollment Services at Keyano College, emphasizes that the financial obstacles faced by international students in Alberta are minimized through the funding provided under the CUAET.

“I believe that offering Ukrainian students’ domestic tuition is a transformative step towards their integration and educational development,” says Herweck.

“This program reinforces our values of solidarity and inclusion, and we hope to provide some stability during uncertain times.”

Keyano says students applying for the domestic tuition must submit all required documentation to the registrar’s office to qualify for the international fee exemption.
