Goldey-Beacom College, reduced undergraduate tuition for the fall of 2021 to $12,750, from the current $25,500.
In fall 2014, the college introduced its Affordability Assurance Award which reduced tuition by slightly more than half for all undergraduate students. The college will make the reduction permanent.
“Originally, we stated our true tuition but then discounted that amount significantly, for every student, for every year, for seven years. It is now time we call tuition what it really is and simplify the process,” said GBC President, Dr. Colleen Perry Keith. “As other colleges continue to ‘go high’ with tuition increases each year, offset with tuition discounts of varying amounts, we now choose to ‘go low’ and state our true cost upfront. As high-cost colleges continue to raise tuition and discount it, lowering our actual tuition is a big move, but we are ready to make this commitment, and we are proud to do it.”
For current students, the low net price will not change from this year to the next.
Founded in 1886, Goldey-Beacom College has approximately 1,800 students enrolled from 22 states and over 60 nations. The college has moved to online instruction for the fall semester.
The college offers 41 degree options in graduate and undergraduate programs with majors in psychology, economics, criminal justice, communication & media, human services, English and all areas of business including accounting, business administration, entrepreneurship and finance. Recent program additions include the Doctor of Business Administration program which started in fall 2018.
