Wilson College to hold tuition rates steady for full-time students

November 13, 2012

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Wilson College announced this week it will hold the line on tuition again next year for full-time, undergraduate students.

The decision, made by the Board of Trustees at its October meeting, means that the 2013-14 tuition rate for full-time undergraduates will remain at $28,745 for the third year in a row, according to a news release from the school.

The board also voted to keep housing fees at the current rate while approving modest hikes in fees for meals and technology. Food costs will go up 5 percent and the technology fee will increase 3 percent in 2013-14 to cover only the direct increases in the college’s cost of providing the services. The result is that full-time, residential Wilson students will pay .65 percent — or $255 — more next year for tuition and fees, combined, according to the release.

Tuition for other students who pay by the course — including part-time students enrolled in the adult degree, teacher intern and master’s degree programs — will increase 5 percent in 2013-14, the release states.

Wilson moved up its tuition decision by several months for 2012-13. Setting it in October will give students extra time to weigh all of their college options and make a timely decision, according to Mary Ann Naso, vice president for enrollment.

Naso urged prospective students to take advantage of Wilson’s customized net price calculator to help them analyze the true cost of attending.

The net price calculator helps students decipher the difference between the full, “sticker price” of attending the college and the “net price” that they would actually pay. The net price is what a student can expect to pay after grants, scholarships and financial aid that are likely to be available them, the release states.

Wilson’s net price calculator can be found online at www.wilson.edu.
