UoC: Tuition increase is a fact

UniversityWILLEMSTAD - The University of Curaçao Dr. Moises da Costa Gomez (UoC) has taken note of various publications in the media, which indicate the increase in tuition fees is not official yet and that it still has to be approved by the Parliament of Curaçao.

However, this information is not correct, as the official ordinance had already been promulgated on August 1, 2014. At the request of the government, the UoC has therefore taken all measures to start the current academic year in accordance with the applicable tuition rates.

The fact that Parliament will discuss the concerns is no indication that the earlier official ordinance should be approved by Parliament or that it does not have any validation.

UoC regrets the unnecessary confusion caused by these publications.
