Millersville University is implementing a new, flexible pricing plan for tuition, which will be effective with the fall 2014 semester.
Under the new pricing structure, students will be billed for tuition on a per-credit-hour cost of $264 per credit. This pricing model replaces the past pricing structure which charged a flat rate for full-time students who were enrolled in 12-18 credits. It brings Millersville in line with higher education institutions across the nation, which have been charging on a per-credit-hour basis.
The Board of Governors (BOG) of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education approved this flexible pricing plan for Millersville University at their meeting July 8. At that same time, the BOG approved a $99 per-semester tuition increase (3 percent) for the 2014-15 academic year for all schools except Millersville University, since our institution has adopted the per-credit-hour model.
Under Millersville’s new per-credit pricing model, the cost this fall will be $264 per credit. This amount is based on a 7 percent reduction from the per-credit rate of $276 (based on a full 12 credit load) from the last academic year, combined with the 3 percent increase approved by the BOG.
Students are encouraged to check their MAX accounts for billing and financial aid information. Bills for the fall 2014 semester will be available July 21 and are due on August 6. Any updates to financial aid packages can be viewed on the MAX account and awards will be made no later than August 6.
