Strayer University Announces Tuition Reduction, Builds on ‘Graduation Fund’
to Further Increase College Affordability and Promote Graduation
One-of-a-kind tuition model supports students from start to finish
HERNDON, Va. -- November 22, 2013
Strayer University, a postsecondary institution that has served working adults
for 120 years, today announced that it is combining two affordability measures
to offer students an up to 40 percent reduction in tuition. Upon enrollment,
new undergraduate students will receive an immediate 20 percent tuition
savings, as well as begin to accrue Tuition Awards in their Graduation Fund to
cover the cost of one future class for every three that are successfully
completed. Strayer University’s combined tuition reduction program is
available for new undergraduate students.
“College affordability and the ability to persist through to graduation
continue to be among the biggest challenges facing working adults when going
back to school,” said Michael Plater, Ph.D., president of Strayer University.
“For this reason, Strayer University maintains an ongoing focus on finding
ways to open the doors of education to all and minimize obstacles to
graduation. The new tuition reduction program is designed to achieve this by
supporting our students from beginning to end of their academic journeys.”
Strayer University’s combined tuition reduction program applies to all new
undergraduate students enrolling for Winter 2014 and future terms. Winter
classes begin on Monday, January 6, 2014.
There is no paperwork to complete and no competition against other students to
receive the benefits of the reduced tuition. In addition, there is no limit on
the number of students who can participate and no expiration date as long as
students continue their enrollment and remain in good academic standing.
“Strayer University’s 120-year legacy is founded on our ability to innovate
and re-imagine higher education in significant and meaningful ways,” said Karl
McDonnell, chief executive officer of Strayer Education, Inc. “Through our new
reduced tuition program, we are again innovating to help make college more
affordable and accessible, while creating a supportive learning environment
and culture of completion that rewards students for their commitment.”
