Colleges Freeze Tuition Rates for 2013-14 School Year
It seems as though all that’s ever reported is the rising cost of college tuition rates. While there is truth to that claim, many colleges are working towards making college more affordable or, at the very least, stopping rates from becoming even less affordable for students. Critics of tuition cuts or freezes question whether or not the quality of education will suffer or reduce the amount of financial aid granted to students in need. Additionally, some critics consider tuition freezes a publicity stunt. Whether or not you find value in the situation is up to you. The following list that includes, but is not limited to, schools that have frozen or reduced tuition for the upcoming 2013-2014 school year*. See if your school is on the list! • Ancilla College

*Many schools include stipulations where the freeze only applies to residents or in-state students.
It’s important to note that many of the schools do not include room and board charges as well as health, activity or technology frees within the freezes. These fees can add up to a significant amount on top of the frozen or reduced tuition rates. Nonetheless, a freeze or reduction is certainly better than a raise, don’t you agree?
