SJC Freezing Tuition and Offering Guaranteed Tuition Rate Plan
Saint Joseph's College is freezing its 2013-14 tuition and will offer a guaranteed tuition rate plan that will go into effect at the start of the 2013-14 academic year.
By paying the same tuition rate throughout the entire degree program, students are potentially saving thousands of dollars, especially as college tuition increases each year. While SJC is committed to maintaining its affordable rates, the guaranteed tuition rate plan is the College's way to help students finance their education in uncertain economic times.
"The guaranteed tuition rate plan will prove very beneficial financially for families," said Director of Student Financial Services Deb Sizemore '88. "Having the knowledge of the exact cost of tuition for all four years will be one less burden on families as they prepare for the college experience."
The length of the guaranteed tuition rate plan is four continuous academic years beginning with the term of a qualifying student's initial enrollment at SJC. The period is extended for undergraduate degree programs approved by the College for completion in more than four years.
SJC President Dr. F. Dennis Riegelnegg said, "I am very pleased that Saint Joseph's College is able to take another step toward providing students with an affordable, high quality college education. As a 'Top 10 Best Value College,' we are committed to offering even more value to students and their families."
Saint Joseph's College, named a "character-building college" by the Templeton Foundation and a "best Midwestern college" by the Princeton Review, is a four-year, Catholic college offering 27 majors, 4 group majors, 34 minors, and 9 pre-professional programs, complemented by the nationally acclaimed Core Program. Founded and sponsored by the Missionaries of the Precious Blood, SJC is located in Rensselaer, Indiana, approximately 90 minutes from both Chicago and Indianapolis, on a park-like campus of 180 acres and has an enrollment of 1,100 students.
