Burleson College To Reduce Tuition by 10 percent
Burleson College announced 11:45 a.m. Friday that they will be reducing tuition by 10 percent for all students including out of state tuition.
“I am extremely pleased that the board has seen fit to follow our recommendations on lowering tuition costs. During the past several years, we have had to raise tuition a number of times for all of our students. Out-of-state students have been particularly hard-hit,” Said the president of Burleson College.
Due to these recent changes in tuition, the president is excited to announce a change bringing about lower rates. The board agreed on a new rate that will ease the financial burden and encourage out of state students to attend. By lowering the tuition across the board, the college will be able to maintain a competitive edge.
The current tuition costs are:
Undergraduate (in-state): $1050
Graduate (out-of-state): $1700
Each of these will be decreased by 10 percent for the upcoming semester. Burleson College hopes to welcome many new students and create an accessible campus by reducing tuition costs.
While decreasing tuition does mean a smaller budget, the president has clarified that no faculty or staff member will lose their job. Some departments will be strategically merged to broaden the scope of the studies while allowing them to operate more efficiently.
Burleson College is located in the plains of Texas just outside of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. They offer a wide variety of programs including a rigorous agricultural studies department. The college is expanding everyday and provides a local alternative to major universities.
