Roger Williams continues to freeze tuition; no increase for 4 years for current students


BRISTOL, Rhode Island — Roger Williams University says it will continue to freeze its tuition.

The private university about 18 miles south of Providence is promising an annual tuition rate of $29,976 through the 2016-17 school year.

It says current students won't see an increase during the next four years. Students who enroll in the 2016-2017 year are also guaranteed the same tuition.

The university has kept its tuition the same since 2012, when it launched an initiative to address the rising cost of college and student debt. There's a tuition freeze and tuition rate guarantee at its law school too.

The university lowered tuition at its law school by 18 percent, to $33,792, in 2014. RWU President Donald J. Farish says he wants to give parents and students predictability about education costs.
