For St. John’s University, Affordable Tuition is a Catholic Cause

In an effort to reduce the financial burden of a college education that students and their families face, St. John’s University (NY) has enacted a tuition freeze for the 2015-2016 school year. Instead of implementing a planned three percent annual increase in tuition for the upcoming academic year, the university decided to freeze tuition, fees, and room and board costs. The freeze on tuition, along with other efforts to keep costs low for students, was possible because of the university’s work to reduce expenses and increase efficiency.  As noted in the Catholic News Agency article, the goal of keeping tuition affordable is directly linked to the Catholic, Vincentian mission of St. John’s University.
