Tuition Decrease at Area Colleges
"Tuition Resets." It’s a buzz term in higher education for schools who say they’re responding to students and parents who say they can’t afford college tuition, with the hikes in rates over the last several years. About a dozen colleges across the US have adjusted their tuition rates recently, and the presidents of two of those colleges in OUR region will join us today. We’ll talk about the decision to lower rates at those schools, what a tuition reset really means, and the overall trend in the cost of college across the US.
