Multnomah University freezes tuition rates for 2014-2015 academic year

1/8/2014
PORTLAND, Ore. — Multnomah University is freezing tuition rates for the 2014-2015 academic year, reflecting the University’s commitment to providing a high-quality education at an affordable price.
 
“We want to do everything possible to ensure that students continue to have access to education and the means to complete their degree here,” said Russ Lacy, vice president and chief financial officer for Multnomah. “Providing students with the best education remains our top priority.”
 
Tuition for a full-time undergraduate student on the Portland campus will remain at $21,600 for the coming academic year. That’s about $7,000 lower than the national average for a year of private education, according to collegedata.com.
 
Tuition also will remain the same for the University’s graduate, degree completion and seminary programs with two exceptions. Tuition for the Doctor of Ministry program will increase by 2 percent, while tuition for the Bible & Theology program on the Reno-Tahoe campus will increase by 9 percent.
 
Multnomah University will continue to assist students through financial aid services. Last year, 93 percent of MU students received some form of financial assistance. The average package for undergraduates was $16,000.
 
In total, Multnomah provided $11.8 million in financial assistance last year, including $4.3 million in grants and scholarships.
