Modest 2010-2011 tuition rate approved by Board of Trustees

Emory’s Board of Trustees approved a 2.9 percent increase in the 2010-2011 undergraduate tuition rate for Emory’s College of Arts and Sciences during their Feb. 11 meeting.  The Board action will increase Emory’s current undergraduate tuition from $37,500 to $38,600, and its combined undergraduate tuition, fees, room and board to $50,356.

“World class faculty, the best and brightest students, and high quality staff all continue to command Emory’s focus,” says Earl Lewis, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost. “But with these priorities, Emory is mindful of the financial impact of any tuition increase on families, especially during this difficult economic period.

“We were able to contain our tuition increase due in part to an aggressive administrative review process in 2009 that led to 3 to 5 percent cuts in administrative budgets. These cuts allowed us to concentrate our resources on academic excellence, while holding the tuition rate increase to a minimum.”

The 2010-2011 tuition rate adjustment is the smallest percentage increase by Emory in more than 30 years.

Overall tuition rates increases for Emory colleges and schools will range from 2.9 to 5.1 percent.
