Tuition Forum

To our students:

On Friday, February 9, I presented my annual update on University initiatives and also reviewed tuition, and room and board increases for next academic year.  For those of you who were unable to attend, I have posted the presentation below.

University Initiatives Update and Tuition Discussion

Included is a summary of some new initiatives designed to enhance student learning and life experiences at Case Western Reserve, as well as a review of enhancements to University facilities, including athletic facilities and Thwing, new academic programs, International programs, and student-support and retention programs.

I also summarized rates for tuition, room and board for the 2018-2019 academic year.  Your University recognizes the challenges accompanying cost increases.  Please be assured that pricing changes reflect our goal of providing you with an even better learning and living experience here at Case Western Reserve University.

Thank you for your interest.
