Partners responds to NSU tuition freeze decision

Today, Partners for College Affordability and Public Trust released the following statement in response to the decision by the Norfolk State University Board of Visitors to approve a budget that freezes tuition and mandatory E&G fees for all undergraduate students.  This decision follows action by state lawmakers to allocate an additional $52.5 million for tuition moderation at Virginia's public colleges and universities, including $971,000 for Norfolk State University.

“By freezing in-state tuition this year, the Norfolk State University Board has taken a significant step towards making a college education more affordable for students," said Partners' president Dr. James Toscano. "Thanks to a collaborative effort by state lawmakers and college administrators, students and families have been given some much needed breathing room from rising tuition as we all work together to create long-term solutions."
