FOR RELEASE
2010-02-11
Huntington, Ind.—The Huntington University Board of Trustees has approved an overall 4.9 percent increase for full-time traditional undergraduate tuition and fees for 2010-2011.

By comparison, tuition and fees at four-year public colleges rose by an average of 6.5 percent last year, according to The College Board.

“In light of the current economy, Huntington has worked diligently to moderate any increases in tuition and fees. We want to keep college affordable for students and their families,” said Tom Ayers, vice president for business and finance. “We have carefully trimmed some budgets to lower operating expenses while maintaining high quality in our academic programs. This year, we strategically increased scholarships and grants for students to help offset declining state aid. Our goal is to give students and their families more value for their higher education dollar.”

Huntington University was ranked fifth on the Best Values list for baccalaureate colleges in the Midwest in the 2010 guide to America's Best Colleges published by U.S.News & World Report. This ranking is based on the percentage of students receiving need-based grants, the average cost of tuition after receiving those grants and the average discount from the total cost. Approximately 90 percent of Huntington University students receive financial aid in the form of scholarships, grants, loans or work-study assistance.

For the current 2009-2010 academic year, Huntington University's price of $21,290 for tuition and fees is $4,983 less than the national average for private colleges and universities. According to research by The College Board, the average published price for tuition and fees this year is $26,273.

In 2010-11, tuition and fees at Huntington University will be $22,330. Room and board charges will be $7,430.
