Members of the Lawrence University Board of Trustees were on campus this week for their annual winter meeting. One of the important matters discussed was tuition.
The full-time tuition for the 2014-15 academic year was set at $42,357. Together with room, board and other fees, the total comprehensive fee will be $51,465. This represents a 3.5 percent increase in tuition and a 3.51 percent increase in the total comprehensive fee for next year.
“As we consider how best to meet our responsibilities, there are three considerations that govern our decisions: affordability, quality and efficiency,” said Lawrence President Mark Burstein. “Despite the fact that endowment earnings, grants and gifts from alumni and friends of Lawrence meet 23.5 percent of the costs of a Lawrence education, I look at every expenditure as if it were being paid directly by the families of our students. Looking ahead, know that the affordability of a quality Lawrence education remains among my highest priorities.”
