Board Unanimously Approves Tuition Rates for 2013-2014 Academic Year

WASHINGTON (January 29, 2013) – The Howard University Board of Trustees has approved the 2013-14 undergraduate, graduate and professional schools tuition and fees proposed by President Sidney A. Ribeau during the January 26 meeting of the full board. There was no increase undergraduate tuition. For graduate and professional schools, the increases range from 0 to 8 percent; five graduate programs experienced no change in tuition.

“Howard University continues to be one of our nation’s best, accessible and affordable comprehensive research institutions,” Ribeau said. “We are very sensitive to the ability of our students to finance graduate education. Our undergraduate, graduate and professional tuition rates for 2013-2014 remain lower than our peer institutions while keeping us competitive.”

Based on the recommendations of the deans through the University's Tuition and Rates Committee (TRAC) led by the Provost -- which includes faculty, students, staff and administrators -- recommendations regarding tuition and fees are presented for approval based on a number of factors including demand, current rates and enrollment.  The University’s approach to tuition and mandatory fee pricing is designed to enhance academic and student services, to ensure the University’s financial sustainability and to provide support for short- and long-term reinvestment strategies.

The Graduate School will unveil a new price structure in the 2013-2014 academic year reflecting a five percent increase. Effective this fall, the University will freeze tuition for doctoral students for their first three years of consecutive continuous enrollment and a flat rate of $5,200 for students who have been advanced to candidacy for years four to seven, based on continuous enrollment. Individual programs will provide a detailed overview of new tuition and fees rates.

The University is also exploring undergraduate tuition new tuition models, including a four-year cap (a fix tuition per incoming class for four years) and a 40-credit hour tuition, which includes fall, spring and summer sessions.

Last March, President Ribeau also launched the  Bridging the Gap Student Aid Campaign to raise $25 million in current–use and endowed scholarship and fellowship assistance that will directly address the gaps in financial aid for deserving students.

A team of professionals in the Office of Student Financial Services is available to provide further guidance and answer questions about the 2013-2014 tuition and fees, need-based and merit-based financial aid and payment options. For more information, visit http://www.howard.edu/financialaid
