HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. — On Wednesday, Northern Kentucky University announced it is offering all Cincinnati Christian University students a 50 percent tuition discount after CCU announced its closure on Monday.

“When we learned of this unfortunate news, we knew NKU had to offer options to assist these students, who are now navigating a new hurdle in their education,” said NKU President Ashish Vaidya. "Our hope is to provide an option to those who are quickly re-evaluating their future.”

The tuition discount excludes fees, but is applicable to undergraduates and graduates alike, regardless of their residency status. Application fees and spring housing deposits for students who want to live on NKU's campus will also be waived for CCU students.

A statement from NKU said the university's curriculum accommodates about 400 CCU courses, making a student's transfer process easier.

Northern Kentucky University plans to hold an information session for those CCU students interested in transferring to NKU on Nov. 7 from 3-7 p.m. at the Price Hill Recreation Center. CCU students can also visit NKU's website for more information about transferring.

"We are happy to be flexible and offer reduced tuition and ease of transfer to these affected CCU students," said Kimberly Scranage, vice president for Enrollment and Degree Management. "NKU is committed to meeting students where they are in order to complete their higher education goals."
