Webster announced a tuition freeze on Sept. 24 for both new and returning undergraduate students for the 2020-21 academic year. The freeze will ensure no tuition increase for students who qualify.
To qualify, undergraduate students must be enrolled in 13 to 18 credit hours for the semester. Graduate students who are enrolled at the Webster Groves, Gateway, Westport and Wing Haven campuses will also see no increase in tuition. All military and online students also qualify for the tuition freeze.
Tuition for non-conservatory students increased by $800 the last six academic years. Ninety-eight percent of all students at Webster receive financial aid to attend the university. Aid to students increased by $2.2 million over the past year.
The tuition freeze was approved after a Board of Trustees meeting.
