Framingham State Commits To Freeze Undergrad Tuition, Fees, & Housing For 2021-22

PLEASE SHARE

FRAMINGHAM – Framingham State University (FSU) has committed to freezing undergraduate Tuition and Fees, as well as standard Housing rates, for the 2021-2022 academic year in order to provide relief to students and families going through hard times. The move will be considered by the FSU Board of Trustees in January, with approval fully anticipated.

“The pandemic has put such a burden on so many of us and many people are struggling,” said Framingham State President F. Javier Cevallos. “With the support of our Board of Trustees, I’m happy to say that we are fully committed to keeping the price of attending Framingham State University flat for the upcoming academic year.”

The University has been asking departments across campus to tighten their budgets and target efficiencies in order to offset deficits created by holding tuition and fees flat.

Current in-state Tuition and Fees at Framingham State University are $11,380 per year.

Framingham State University has also increased college and foundation support for student financial aid by over $1 million over the past few years and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has approved an increase in state MassGrant funding for state universities and it is anticipated that over $1 million in additional financial aid will be available for Framingham State University students beginning this academic year.

“Framingham State University provides tremendous value to students and families interested in avoiding the higher costs at private schools,” said Cevallos. “While many people think of state schools as a ‘cheaper option,’ it’s important to remember that the state is picking up nearly half of the tab. So it’s less expensive for you, but the quality of our academic facilities, faculty, and residence halls are on par with what you will find at private schools.”

“After carefully evaluating the University’s current financial position, I feel this is absolutely the right thing to do for our students and families,” said Board of Trustees Chair Kevin Foley ’84. “Our budget will take a small hit as a result of this decision, but careful stewardship of the University’s resources over the years puts us in a strong position to provide this relief.”

Framingham State University has been ranked a National Top 25 “Best Value” College for 2020 based on factors including list price, net student cost after financial aid, student debt upon graduation, and starting salary upon college completion.
