Utica College Freezes Tuition for 2020-21
No Tuition Increases Across All Campuses, Learning Platforms
President Laura Casamento has announced that Utica College will freeze its tuition for the 2020-2021 academic year. This applies to all undergraduate and graduate students. Students will pay the same rate as the previous academic year.
“We know that many of our students and families face a great deal of financial uncertainty because of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Jeffery Gates, senior vice president of student life and enrollment management. “We want to ensure that they are able to come to Utica College to obtain a first-class education.”
Tuition rates will remain steady at the college’s nursing campus in Liverpool, N.Y., as well as those located in Miramar and St. Petersburg, Florida. This specialized program is for students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree, but decide to pursue an accelerated hybrid program of online and clinical study in nursing in just 16 months.
Popular undergraduate majors, Gates said, include nursing, health sciences, cybersecurity and construction management, as well as a host of others. The college’s hallmarks have always been small class size, personal attention, affordability and internships that provide real-world experience to help grads entering the job market.
Online graduate programs include masters’ degrees in cybersecurity, economic crime and fraud management, financial crime and compliance management, health care administration, accounting and management. In addition, the college offers a doctoral program in physical therapy.
Utica College was one of the first colleges in the country to reset its undergraduate tuition in 2016, lowering the cost by some $14,000. In addition, the reset made the entire admissions process more transparent and easier to navigate.
“No college understands the need for affordability better than Utica. Utica College has the best private college price among all our peer institutions in the Northeast – and that’s before financial aid,” Gates said.
