UPLAND, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — The Taylor University Board of Trustees has decided to freeze tuition for the 2021-2022 academic year. Interim President Paige Comstock Cunningham says the decision was made citing financial challenges faced by students and families.
Dr. Comstock Cunningham says this is the first time in the school’s recent history that tuition will not be increased, with the usual increase being less than 5%. Also, the school has decided that room and board fees will increase by 3.5%, which is less than $400 total.
“This is the right thing to do for our students and for our families,” said Cunningham. “This year, more than ever before, it’s absolutely critical that holding steady to our mission looks different.”
The tuition freeze has also been approved by the Taylor Senior Leadership Team, following a review of pricing options and university budget stipulations.
