Keyano College has announced continuing supports for Ukrainian students who have fled the war in Ukraine.
Beginning this academic year, students enrolled at Keyano through a valid Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) visa and study permit will pay domestic tuition rates instead of international rates.
In a statement, Laura Herweck, Manager of Enrollment Services at Keyano College, said funding under CUAET reduces financial barriers for international students.
“I believe that offering Ukrainian students domestic tuition is a transformative step towards their integration and educational development. This program reinforces our values of solidarity and inclusion, and we hope to provide some stability during uncertain times.”
CUAET offers Ukrainians free, extended temporary status, while they study and work in Canada until it’s safe to return to Ukraine.
Students wishing to qualify for the domestic tuition rate under CUAET must submit their documentation to the registrar’s office.
According to the school, there is no fee to apply for the study permit.
“Students under the CUAET program can begin their studies once they have received a valid study permit. Approved study permits under the CUAET are valid for up to 3 years, giving students adequate time to complete their program from start to finish.”
Once students graduate, they may apply for permanent residency through specific provincial and federal immigration programs.
