EDMONTON—Faculty and students at the University of Alberta are expecting possible tuition increases and cuts to funding, indicating an uncertain financial future for the province's biggest university.

The university's president, David Turpin, told faculty and students Tuesday during his annual remarks that he anticipates changes will take place "immediately" in the aftermath of the United Conservatives' first budget, to be released on Oct. 24.

"Being uncertain about the outcome of the provincial budget is not … new to us," Turpin said. "However, I recognize that there is a heightened sense of uncertainty this year."
