Lees-McRae College Announces Tuition Guarantee Program

October 05, 2015

Lees-McRae College has implemented a tuition guarantee program for students beginning in fall 2016. As a testament to the College’s commitment to affordability, all students entering the 2016-17 academic year will be guaranteed the same rate of tuition for remaining academic years based on their classification as of fall 2016. 

“This program further demonstrates that Lees-McRae College is a good value,” remarked Ginger Hansen, vice president of enrollment management and communications. “We recognize that families are challenged by the rising costs of attending college and want to do our part to help students complete their degrees and reach their professional goals without the added burden of increasing tuition costs each year.”

The tuition guarantee will apply to main campus freshmen and transfer students entering fall 2016 with the length of the guarantee determined by the student’s classification at the time of entry. Current students enrolled in fall 2016 will also receive this benefit for the 2016-2017 academic year through graduation. Extended campus and online learning students are already benefiting from a similar program and are guaranteed consistent tuition for both years of their degree completion programs. 

Lees-McRae’s tuition is 10% less than the average private college in North Carolina, and the College launched a flat-rate textbook program in fall 2015 to assist families in planning for educational costs. In addition, the College awards $14 million annually in institutional scholarships and grants and helps facilitate more than $25 million in financial aid.  That equates to an average Lees-McRae scholarship of $12,471 and an average financial aid package of $22,736.
