Tuition for undergraduate programs will not see increase in 2019-20 at Tusculum University

There will be no increase in tuition costs for Tusculum University undergraduate students enrolled for the 2019-2020 academic year after members of the Tusculum University Board of Trustees voted to freeze fees for the upcoming year at their recent meeting.

“We are pleased to announce that tuition at Tusculum University will remain the same for next academic year,” said Dr. James L. Hurley, president. “It is our mission to serve our students to the best of our ability and this tuition freeze will help ensure that a quality degree from Tennessee’s first higher education institution remains both affordable and attainable.”

While many institutions seek to raise tuition annually, this is the second tuition freeze Tusculum has adopted in less than five years, last freezing fees for the 2015-16 academic year. “This freeze represents Tusculum’s ongoing commitment to both minimizing student loan debt and ensuring that a quality education remains affordable for our Tusculum students,” said Dr. Paul Pinckley, vice president of enrollment management and financial aid.

The tuition freeze applies to all undergraduate Tusculum programs. To adjust for program pricing norms within the market, Tusculum’s graduate programs will see a modest increase in 2019-2020. However, Tusculum’s longstanding commitment to minimizing student debt means that our graduate programs remain very affordable and competitive, representing an excellent investment towards future career growth for our prospective and current graduate students
