Ashland University Cuts Undergraduate Tuition by More Than $10,000
Date:8/27/2013

Ashland, Ohio (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

Ashland University has made a bold move in addressing the issues of accessibility and affordability facing higher education. The University has reset its cost structure for full-time undergraduate tuition and financial aid resulting in a cost cut of more than $10,000 for the 2014-15 academic year.

Finks said that nothing will be cut or eliminated from the total Ashland educational experience to accommodate the tuition reset. He said the executive committee of the university’s board of trustees approved the decrease in June following two years of research and discussion.

“The University completed budget realignment in the spring, which has allowed the institution to undertake an initiative like this,” he said. “As we reviewed the alternative, we were uncomfortable with continuing to raise tuition costs and create more student debt year after year.

“Our undergraduate enrollment has been stable over the past few years and we’ve seen an increase this year in first year students compared to 2011 an
