FOR RELEASE
2007-02-16
Huntington, Ind.—The Huntington University Board of Trustees has approved a 3 percent increase for full-time undergraduate tuition for 2007-2008, administrators announced today. This is the third year for low or no price increases at the Christian liberal arts college.

Across the United States, the average tuition and fees at four-year private institutions this year is $22,218, reflecting an average increase of 5.9 percent over 2005-2006, according to College Board’s 2006-2007 annual survey of colleges.

Annual tuition at Huntington University is currently $18,420. The 3 percent increase for the 2007-2008 academic year means that a full-time, undergraduate student at Huntington will pay only $280 more in tuition per semester. Huntington’s 3 percent rise in tuition is expected to be one of the lowest increases in the state this year.

Approximately 90 percent of Huntington University students receive financial aid in the form of scholarships, grants, loans or work-study assistance.

Each year, Huntington University participates in the Student Satisfaction Inventory – a national survey of college students.

“According to survey data, Huntington students believe the tuition they pay is a better investment than students who participated in the Student Satisfaction Inventory at other public and private schools,” said Jeff Berggren, vice president of enrollment management and marketing.
 
Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S.News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest. Founded in 1897 by the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, Huntington University is located on a contemporary, lakeside campus in northeast Indiana. The University is a member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU).
