Wabash College in Crawfordsville has joined a growing list of schools to announce it is freezing tuition rates for the 2021-22 academic year.
The institution says since the pandemic shows no signs of abating, it felt Wabash students and their families need financial help.
“Families in all income brackets are struggling and we’re hoping that freezing our tuition and fees at this year’s rates will bring some relief. We will also continue to offer generous merit scholarships and need-based financial aid so that an exceptional liberal arts education is affordable,” said Wabash College President Scott Feller.
Tuition for 2021-22 will again be $45,000 and fees are $850. The school says about 98% of all Wabash students receive merit scholarships and/or need-based financial aid.
“Wabash is able to offer so many scholarships and grants because of our long history of philanthropy,” said Feller.
Wabash wrapped up the fall semester Tuesday when final exams concluded. The college says it offered a fully in-person, residential experience during the fall semester.
Most classes were taught in-person, though some were taught outside and in non-traditional locations.
