Media Advisory: Wake Forest University Board of Trustees approves tuition for 2015-2016

The Wake Forest University Board of Trustees approved raising undergraduate tuition by 3.25 percent for the 2015-2016 academic year during its winter meeting on Jan. 30.

This is the sixth year in a row the University has kept the tuition increase below 4 percent.

Undergraduate tuition will increase from the current $45,638 to $47,120 next year.

“Our tuition and total cost figures remain consistent with top private universities, yet we recognize the cost of attending a highly selective institution is increasingly difficult for many families,” said President Nathan O. Hatch. “Our efforts to improve access must continue, and we are fully dedicated to that purpose.”

“We have made unprecedented investments to increase our financial aid offerings and through our capital campaign, Wake Will, we have added more than $146 million in new scholarship funds to ensure access to the high-quality Wake Forest academic experience for hardworking students, regardless of their ability to finance their education.”

With changes in room, board and other fees, the overall cost of attendance is expected to increase 3.1 percent to $64,540.
