Per-credit tuition pricing pilot initiated

Bloomsburg University undergraduate students will pay a fixed, per-credit tuition fee starting in fall 2015 under a plan approved by Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education Board of Governors at the Jan. 22 meeting.

The new tuition pricing structure, being introduced under a two-year pilot program, will charge all undergraduate Pennsylvania resident students $284 per credit and all undergraduate non-resident students $568 per credit during academic year 2015-16. Previously, the university charged full-time undergraduate students enrolled in 12 to 18 credits a flat tuition rate.

The new per-credit-hour tuition pricing brings Bloomsburg in line with many higher education institutions across the country and is guided by two elements of the institution’s strategic plan – enrollment management and fiscal sustainability.
