The King's College Announces Tuition Freeze
2012-2013 tuition rates to be capped
NEW YORK, March 8, 2012—The King’s College is pleased to announce that it is instituting a tuition freeze for the 2012-2013 academic year. The tuition freeze, which will cap tuition at $29,240, stands in stark contrast with the tuition inflation that characterizes American higher education.
The freeze at The King’s College comes at a time when the average public university increased tuition by 8% last fall and the average private college tuition increased 4.6% for the 2011-2012 academic year. If tuition inflation continues at the same rate, King’s students will save almost $1,500 compared to students at a comparably priced college.
Brian Parker, VP of Admissions, said, “in such uncertain economic times, I am delighted that we will not raise our tuition prices for the coming academic year. We continue to be grateful to an incredibly supportive group of board members, donors, alumni and friends from around the world who generously support our mission and make it possible to educate the next generation of leaders in the heart of New York City.”
The King’s College educates students in the ideas upon which nations rise and fall. With a focused curriculum in the liberal arts tradition, students are prepared to help shape, and eventually to lead, the institutions of government, civil society, media, law, business, education, the arts, and the church. King’s is a Christian college located in the Empire State Building in New York City.
