The University of Notre Dame Board of Trustees has approved a 3.7 percent tuition increase for the 2017-2018 academic year. The university says the increase is the same as the previous year and remains the lowest in more than 50 years.
Undergraduate tuition and fees will rise to $51,505 in the next school year. Average room and board rates are at $14,890, bringing total student charges to more than $66,000.
"We know well that paying for college involves significant sacrifices for families. We also know that there is no better preparation for life than a superb education, one that seeks to cultivate the mind as well as the heart," said Notre Dame President John Jenkins. "We strive always to be worthy of the trust you have placed in us, and to provide your student with the best possible educational experience."
Notre Dame also made a 3.7 percent tuition hike for the 2015-2016 academic year.
