Moderators and Panelists

Long-Term Financial Model of the College

UCC is dedicated to delivering world-class academic and co-curricular experiences for our students while ensuring that the College is as accessible as possible to the most promising applicants. With the continued need to manage increases in tuition combined with the expectation of ever-increasing operating costs, how will UCC’s financial model evolve to balance our dual objectives?

UCC’s Financial Assistance Program

Over the last 10 years, the College’s commitment to accessibility has resulted in the significant growth of the financial assistance program — today, 20 per cent of students receive financial assistance. What are the implications of this changing landscape, specifically related to ensuring a consistent experience for all students, and addressing the needs of full-fee-paying parents?
