Aquinas College announces tuition and room/board changes for coming year

April 22, 2013 - The Aquinas College Board of Trustees adopted the following tuition and fee schedule for the 2013-2014 academic year:

Tuition : $26,280
Room: $3,820 (standard)
Board: $4,366

This is based on a standard double occupancy with a basic meal plan and represents a 4.8% increase in tuition, a 4.8% increase in room and board, and no increase in the activities and records fee.

School officials indicated that their goal was to keep any increase in costs to an absolute minimum, and to continue the recent trend of keeping increases below the average for private colleges. The decision came out of an extensive analysis of tuition and room and board scenarios for 2013-2014, with the objective of maximizing diverse student enrollment and insuring that the College maintains a balanced budget.

“We strive to keep an Aquinas education affordable and accessible through institutional financial aid, and we will continue to pursue this mission of accessibility. We are identified by U.S. News as a Best Value in the Midwest, and our students graduate with student debts well below the state average.” said Steve Wonch, Aquinas College CFO.
