Springfield, Ohio - Wittenberg University tuition and fees will increase 4.8 percent for the 2002-03 school year, following action by the university board of directors. The increase will cover costs for technology, upgrading space and to support increased compensation for faculty and staff.
The decision will increase annual tuition from $22,680 to $23,760. Room and board charges will also increase 5 percent. Room charges will go from $2,984 to $3,134 and board charges will increase from $2,792 for the year to $2,932.
Wittenberg has kept annual increases well below the average tuition increase (for the 2001-02 school year) of 7 percent for public colleges and 5.5 percent for private colleges, according to The College Board. Wittenberg tuition increased four percent for each of the past two years. Darrell Kitchen, Vice President for Finance, said Wittenberg will make every effort to keep cost increases to a minimum while ensuring the quality of a Wittenberg education. In addition the university has increased available financial assistance by five percent, from $22.5 million to $23.7 million. Kitchen said it is important to match rising costs with financial aid in order to preserve the availability of a Wittenberg education to a diverse population.
