Raleigh, N.C. — Students at William Peace University will not pay more for tuition or room and board in the 2013-14 academic year, the school announced Thursday.
The freeze is part of the school's continuing efforts to make college affordable to students. William Peace University announced a tuition freeze in the fall.
“It is our primary focus to equip students for their professional career, but the only way to ensure that it takes place is by establishing a system that addresses the financial considerations of students today," president Debra M. Townsley said in a statement. "Our economy is improving, but is still a challenge for most Americans. We hope that the tuition, housing and board freeze will better assist students throughout the learning process.”
The school's enrollment grew 9 percent in 2012-13 and now has 791 students. New student enrollment increased by 82 percent in the current academic year.
