PLEASE DISTRIBUTE WIDELY

In December 2013, the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities revised the 2013-14 to 2016-17 Tuition Fee Framework and Ancillary Fee Guidelines for Publicly-Assisted Universities.  The revisions include changes regarding the charging of compulsory ancillary fees for digital learning materials required for assessment purposes. 

The Ministry has signaled the need for each university to establish a policy regarding the use of digital learning materials for assessment purposes. 

Attached are the Provostial Guidelines on the Use of Digital Learning Materials and well as a Frequently Asked Questions.  These Guidelines will be in effect for 2014-2015 and will be reviewed in early spring 2015.
