This decision follows the recent one-year anniversary of the university’s bookstore initiative, which saved students $2 million in its first year. The tuition freeze is the latest example of the university’s commitment to lowering costs for higher education.
Students now pay an average of 30 percent less for course materials than they did last year and receive free ground shipping. They also receive 24/7 support to help them get the course materials they need in time for term starts. Interactive learning tools have also been added to more than 200 classes.
“All of these improvements add up to bigger savings, better service and more success for our students,” said Matt Thornton, senior director of Student Success in the College of Online and Continuing Education. “We have seen tremendous results over the last year, but despite these successes, our work is far from done.”
