The Province of Nova Scotia has not yet confirmed any change to the Nova Scotia Bursary Program for 2016/17 year.  At this time The University of King's College has assumed the 2015/16 rates.   For the 2015/16 academic year, the Nova Scotia Provincial Government has committed to providing ongoing assistance to Nova Scotia students through a University Student Bursary Trust. This $1,283 reduction for a full course load is adjusted on a pro-rata basis according to the actual number of credit courses taken. Questions can be directed to King's Student Accounts. (Students do not have to apply for this bursary. It is an automatic reduction to a student's account based on the student's registration).

To avoid the $50.00 late fee and interest all tuition fees, and if applicable residence costs, must be paid in full by the term due date.

Interest is 6% a year

Audit Classes: All students auditing a class pay one-half of the regular tuition fee plus auxiliary fees, if applicable.
