Roger Williams University Holding on to Tuition Freeze
Roger Williams University said it’s holding the line on tuition costs. Tuition will remain just below 30-thousand dollars for the third year in a row.
And University president Donald Farish said he will keep it frozen as long as possible.
"Our goal is to make Roger Williams education a little more affordable every year to a few more people by not increasing our tuition," said Farish.
Roger Willliams’ commitment to holding the line on tuition is paying dividends. The university says its freshman-to-sophomore retention rate has increased from 78 to 84 percent. The revenue generated by that jump actually exceeded what the University would have generated through a three percent tuition increase.
