The University of Minnesota Morris is excited to share with potential students that they could potentially save $20,000 on tuition costs for a bachelor's degree. The fix? It's scraping an entire year off students' academic calendar.
New America's "Varying Degrees 2023" survey found that 70% of Americans believe higher education will improve one's financial stability, but only 59% disagree that the state of higher ed is fine as it is.
Purdue, for example, has agreed to its twelfth consecutive year of freezing tuition, set below $10,000. The university estimates that this decision has saved students more than $1 billion on educational and living expenses since 2013. However, most public institutions cannot afford to set a tuition freeze without state funding.
