Taylor University is raising tuition, room and board, and associated fees by 2.5% for the upcoming 2012-2013 academic year - an increase percentage-wise that is the lowest in 10 years.

Total costs for next year will increase from $34,970 to $35,845 – an adjustment of $875. Students enrolled full-time for both fall and spring semesters will continue to have access to the free-tuition benefit offered during January, worth approximately $3,400 (a $13,600 value over four years).

“The J-term program continues to be a significant value-added part of the Taylor experience, providing students with the opportunity to accelerate their degree (the average Taylor graduate finishes his or her degree in 3.8 years), or participate in unique global experiences,” said Taylor President Dr. Eugene B. Habecker.

“One of the primary challenges of my presidency is to manage the costs and affordability issues that confront our Taylor community,” Habecker said, adding  Taylor’s increases have historically been below the national average of 8%.

“Producing our yearly budget is a prayerful exercise that balances important strategic investments with the financial realities we know our families are facing. While the expenses of delivering a people-intensive endeavor continue to rise, we have made significant progress this year absorbing these costs by focusing on improved efficiency and effectiveness in how we deliver the Taylor experience.”
