Hi there,

This petition is being filed against University of Saskatchewan. We all petitioner's will highly appreciate if you would consider the request and work on it as this will reduce a whole a lot burden on us financially and mentally as well.

As it has been decided by President and other board members of the university that Winter Term 2021 will be conducted remotely. We all request a fee reduction for at least Winter term as this would financially ease burden on all of us, please keep this in consideration that there are a lot of students who have taken student loans / debts to pay their fees. Most of our parent's were in favour of studying online and paying the normal fee as well however somehow we managed for one term but majority of us won't be able to continue if same fee is being charged even for remote classes. 

Please take this into consideration, As COVID-19 has created an unpredictable year for us due to which majority of the families have been majorly impacted such as unemployment, savings impacted as economy is not stable. International students have been greatly impacted due to unstable economy as high exchange rates have massively increased their fees. Parents had to use their force savings to pay the fee in full.

However by doing the term online, they are losing the motivation which results in poor results as well. Completing another term online with the normal fee structure won't be fair at all, this is what we all think. If the term was normal face-face classes, we did not mind what normally we're paying. 

We all strongly feel at least 20% reduction on the fee should be made, this would be a very big motivation for us to continue our studies. I'm sure this would definitely drop the rate of drop-outs as well, as most of the people have a reason that they're paying for nothing while studying online.

We all will highly appreciate if management would consider our request and make a reduction on the fee structure as Winter term is remote. We all hope that our request will be considered and we'll get to listen a good news on our accounts soon.
