Letter to Students on 2012-2013 Tuition

By on November 29, 2011 10:35 pm

 November 28, 2011

 

Dear Current Student, Parent, and/or Guardian:

 

While most other universities have announced that their tuition next year will increase – in many cases a substantial increase – the William Peace University Board of Trustees has taken the unusual step of reducing the school’s tuition effective fall 2012.

 

This adjustment will make William Peace University one of the most affordable, private schools for tuition in the country. We recognize that students and families are struggling to pay higher education costs, and our primary motive is to do what we can to help students in this down economy afford tuition at a private university and obtain the best education possible despite economic conditions.

 

We are pleased to announce that the Board of Trustees has approved a 2012-13 tuition of $23,700, a substantial tuition reduction of 7.73 percent. If you are a resident, or purchase a meal plan, for your reference in planning your budget, we are estimating that the standard room (double occupancy) charge will not increase over last year and remains flat at $6,186; due to increases in food costs, board will increase by $120 to $2,814.

 

The University will continue to offer qualified students scholarship opportunities for more savings as well. In addition, students may apply for federal and state assistance if desired by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.ed.gov between January 1, 2012 and our priority date of March 15, 2012. Remember, the William Peace University school code is 002953.

 

This tuition change is one more example of the Board’s commitment to being transparent with you, particularly regarding the challenge of the costs of higher education and the need to keep expenses as low as possible for our students and their families. The William Peace University Board of Trustees is sensitive to these issues, and has worked to streamline operations of the University over the past year as well as to enhance academic and student services as part of overall planned improvements for Peace, along with this reduction.

 

The Trustees, faculty, staff and administrators believe in the value of the Peace degree, and it is evident in our outcomes – more than 90 percent of our graduates find jobs or are accepted into graduate school within a year of graduation.

 

We recognize that this transition may generate questions, which is why we have staff members in our admissions, financial aid and business offices available and ready to address them. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid at (919) 508-2394 or finaid@peace.edu.

 

Please remember that we at William Peace University are always here to help you and make sure you have a top-quality learning experience. We believe this tuition change reflects the fact that William Peace University offers you the best value in higher education, and we look forward to answering any questions that you have.

 

Sincerely,

 

Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D.

President
