St. John Fisher cancels tuition increase in wake of pandemic economy
St. John Fisher College will turn back a planned tuition increase next school year as a way to help mitigate the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on students and their families.
“We made this decision as we make all of our decisions — considering what is best for our students and families and our continued commitment to maintaining the affordability of a Fisher education,” said Fisher President Gerard J. Rooney in an announcement Thursday morning. “We hope that this action will assist our families in a positive way in an otherwise uncertain time.”
Tuition and fees had been scheduled to increase nearly 3 percent. With the increase canceled, full-time residential students at the undergraduate level will save nearly $1,500, while full-time commuters will save $1,200. Graduate students will experience a similar savings.
Like other colleges, Fisher also announced it will teach its summer courses online. Those classes begin next month.
