A poll of Canadian post-secondary students found an overwhelming majority see online classes adding up to lower tuition fees.

The poll of 3,696 students at 25 colleges and universities by OneClass asked them this question: Going online has provided new challenges to schools and their student body. If your school goes completely online in the fall, should tuition change?

Eighty-seven per cent of students responding to the survey said fees should be lower for online classes. Further, 0.8 per cent think tuition should not change, and 0.5 per cent plan to take a gap year because of the pandemic.

As a result of COVID-19, several schools are expected to introduce fully online or hybrid learning classes when they resume in the fall.
