Dear Ontario Universities & Colleges,

It is such a great shame that students cannot attend classes on campus during the fall semester. Thousands of students are excited to start their new year and have unforgettable experiences. Due to COVID-19, we cannot receive the full University and College experience as we have hoped for. For new students, visualize University/College sitting in big lecture halls, forming connections with their professors, joining clubs, and connecting with new students. They will not be able to explore the campus, clubs, lectures, or meet new people. Therefore, paying the full tuition fee is unreasonable. 

As we all know, attending University/College is costly. With the pandemic affecting jobs, it is hard for students and families to pay the full tuition amount for the academic year. This situation is much more difficult for students who are in the position to pay for their fees and to find employment. With all that being said, Ontario schools should look into cutting down the tuition fees until COVID-19 is resolved. Students are paying to sit in a classroom and listen to the professors face-to-face, do labs that are not online stimulators, be a part of discussion groups, and use the resources & technology provided at the school, etc. Having classes moved online is a disadvantage to some students causing it to be un-beneficial for their education. 

Please consider and think about the students and families who cannot afford the fees during this unprecedented time.

Thank you, 

Students across Ontario.
