June 11, 2012. Lees-McRae College announced Monday that there will be no tuition increase for the 2013-14 academic year. This early decision came as a result of a continued commitment to providing a quality, affordable education at the highest elevated campus in the eastern U.S.
“We recognize that many families are challenged in these tough economic times and want to do our part to make a Lees-McRae College education both accessible and affordable for our students,” said Ginger Hansen, vice president for enrollment management. “A college education is one of the best investments a family can make as the earnings potential for college graduates is twice as high as those with only a high school diploma.”
Tuition will remain at $23,450 for the 2013-14 academic year. The college will continue to administer academic and performance based scholarships and generous financial aid packages for qualifying students. Approximately 95% of Lees-McRae College students receive some type of aid.
The college operates on rolling admissions, so there is no deadline to apply. It’s not too late to enroll for Fall 2012. Visit www.lmc.edu for more details.
