NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.– Westminster College will increase tuition next fall by one-point-five percent.
College leaders say that means students will only see an increase of $530 for the 2018-2019 academic year.
President Kathy Richardson announced the increase in a letter sent in campus mail to students.
“The leadership at Westminster continue to focus on controlling the costs of attendance for you, even as we work diligently to broaden and deepen your learning and growth experiences,” Richardson wrote. “This year, the College invested more than $22 million of its funds in financial aid, with the average student paying less than half the total cost of tuition, fees, and boarding.”
The cost of living on campus will remain the same.
Meanwhile, meal plans will increase by 2-percent.
