A Christian liberal arts education just got a little more affordable today when Eastern Nazarene College announced a decrease in tuition costs.
Tuition rates will be adjusted to align with those of Trevecca Nazarene University, Eastern's partner school located in Nashville, Tennessee.
The adjustment will take effect next fall, with the incoming class of 2018. Current students will remain on their current scholarship, financial aid, and tuition packages.
College officials say the alignment will help create a smoother process for students who wish to take advantage of the partnership between Eastern and Trevecca. This partnership is expected to include semester exchange programs and shared classes through the use of instructional technology platforms.
“This alignment of tuition costs begins the process toward students taking classes at both institutions without tuition adjustments or concerns,” said Jeffrey Kirksey, Eastern's dean of students and vice president for student development and retention.
The current tuition difference between Eastern and Trevecca is an estimated $7,900.
