Adams State University has announced a guaranteed-tuition program for undergraduate students enrolled in on-campus classes, according to President Beverlee J. McClure. The Adams State Board unanimously approved the program at a special meeting, Nov. 20.
Beginning with the fall 2016 semester, undergraduate students enrolled in on-campus classes will be guaranteed no tuition increases through their fourth consecutive academic year of enrollment. Adams State is the first and only institution in Colorado to offer guaranteed tuition to on-campus undergraduate students.
“Our goals for this program are, first, to make college more affordable and allow students and their families to better plan for expenses,” McClure said. “Also, by guaranteeing tuition for four years, this encourages students to stay enrolled full-time and to complete their degrees within four years.”
Adams State’s full-time tuition window, which charges a flat rate for 12 to 20 credits a semester, also gives incentive to complete at least 15 credits a semester, which is necessary to graduate within four years.
Guaranteed Tuition is available to all undergraduate students enrolled on-campus, both in-state and out-of-state, including full and part-time, new and transfer students. Details are available at adams.edu/guaranteedtuition or through the One Stop Student Services Center, 719-587-7306.
