Media Advisory: Wake Forest University Board of Trustees approves tuition for 2014-2015

The Wake Forest University Board of Trustees approved raising undergraduate tuition by 3.25 percent for the 2014-2015 academic year during its winter meeting on Jan. 31.

This is the smallest percentage increase in more than 30 years and the fifth year in a row the University has kept the tuition increase below 4 percent.

Undergraduate tuition will increase from the current $44,200 to $45,638 next year.

“Preserving our tradition as a place of opportunity is very important to Wake Forest,” said President Nathan O. Hatch. “As part of our continual efforts to ensure access to a high-quality academic experience, providing increased financial aid to hardworking students, regardless of their ability to finance their education, is a top priority of Wake Will: the Campaign for Wake Forest.”

With changes in room, board and other fees, the overall cost of attendance is expected to increase 3.8 percent to $62,538.
