Phoenix — Oct. 11
University of Phoenix Thursday announced an immediate tuition freeze for all new and current students.
For students, this means that per-credit hour tuition will be held at today’s rates. No students will incur any increase in tuition as long as they meet eligibility requirements and have remained consistently enrolled in the university.
“For too long, rising tuition rates have presented an unacceptable barrier to higher education at colleges and universities throughout the country,” said Bill Pepicello, president, University of Phoenix. “Today, University of Phoenix is taking an important step towards making college a more affordable reality. No student of this university – whether new or existing – will pay increased tuition while earning a degree here, as long as they meet eligibility requirements and remain consistently enrolled. It’s the right thing to do.”
“We’re doing everything we can to help students understand what education costs and the type and amount of aid they qualify for,” said Barry Feierstein, chief business operating officer at University of Phoenix.
