CINCINNATI — Xavier University will maintain current tuition levels for the 2021-22 academic school year, university president Fr. Michael Graham said Friday.
In a Dec. 4 email to students, Graham said he called on XU's Board of Trustees to hold any tuition increases in light of the ongoing economic and financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"I also recognize the financial challenges that many families are facing," Graham wrote in the email. "Xavier will not be increasing our annual tuition for undergraduate and graduate programs."
According to the university's website, base tuition for most full-time, undergraduate programs was $21,115 per semester for the 2020-21 academic year. Graduate degree tuition ranged from $175 to more than $1,000 per credit hour, depending on the program.
Graham said the university still will have "small percentage increases" on other student costs, such as room and board. More information on those increases will be available in January.
