Wells College has announced that they will be dropping their tuition by 25 percent for the next school year.
The published cost of tuition for all new and returning students in the 2019-20 school year will be dropped from $39,200 to $29,400.
“We firmly believe that this tuition reset will help strengthen our ability to compete in the marketplace, and attract new students to enroll at Wells,” said Wells College President Jonathan Gibralter. “In other words, it will help reposition the College as a ‘right-priced’ institution,” added Gibralter, who has served as the College’s 19th president since July 2015.
This initiative was approved unanimously by the Wells College Board of Trustees, who worked closely with President Gibralter and his senior leadership team on the tuition reset.
In all, the published cost of attendance (tuition, fees, and room and board) in 2019–20 will be $45,000 before scholarships, grants and aid are applied; however, the actual cost of attendance for a returning student next fall is expected to remain equal to the out-of-pocket amount for the current 2018–19 year.
