The board of trustees of Cabrini College has authorized a 12.5 percent reduction in undergraduate tuition and fees, effective fall 2012, and other significant moves to ensure  students and their families can plan for college costs through May 2015.

This plan for affordability, which will increase access for the middle class families Cabrini traditionally has served, includes reducing undergraduate tuition and fees to $29,000 for the 2012-13 academic year, and keeping tuition and fees below $30,000 through May 2015.

For comparison, the college’s 2011-12 tuition and fees total $33,176. The college’s 2012-13 tuition and fees will total $29,000.

“Cabrini College is financially strong and students will continue to experience the same extraordinary programs and faculty,” said Cabrini President Marie Angelella George.
“While other colleges have reduced tuition and fees recently, we believe that Cabrini college is the only institution to do so without reducing the dollar amount of scholarships for returning students,” said Dennis Kelly, vice president for enrollment management at Cabrini.
