SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -The Wittenberg University Board of Directors has approved a comprehensive 5 percent increase in tuition, room and board for the 2004-05 academic school year.
Wittenberg President Baird Tipson remains committed to keeping Wittenberg as affordable as possible, while maintaining the quality of the academic program and facilities.
"The continued increase in library materials, technological advances critical to teaching and learning, health care for our faculty and staff, make it impossible for us to provide a quality education without some rise in fees," said Tipson.
Tuition will change from $24,784 to $26,040; room charges will increase from $3,292 to $3,454; and board will increase from $3,080 to $3,232 for the full academic year.
Throughout the past five years, Wittenberg's tuition has increased less than other four-year private colleges, and the increases have been nearly 50 percent less than that of four-year public colleges, according to The College Board.
Wittenberg University, affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, promotes a style of education that emphasizes high academic achievement, personal attention and a faculty that is dedicated to teaching excellence.
