At a time when most universities and colleges in Indiana have increased tuition and fees, Ancilla College is dramatically lowering tuition while also offering more degree choices at its campus near Plymouth.
In a meeting Monday, the college board of trustees voted to approve a 4 percent across-the-board tuition reduction for the 2013–2014 year. The move lowers tuition at what is already the state’s least expensive private college. The new tuition lowers the cost of full-time enrollment at the school to $6,500 per semester, for students enrolling in 15 credit hours for the semester.
“This is a strategic move on our part,” said Ancilla’s president Ron May. “While most colleges and universities have raised their tuition each year over the past decade Ancilla is moving to reduce the cost of higher education.”
