LIVINGSTON, Ala. — The University of West Alabama will freeze tuition for its fall semester. The university will also avoid increasing tuition, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The school’s board of trustees approved the move as part of its operating budget for the upcoming fiscal year.
UWA President Ken Tucker said the university’s goal is to provide affordable education during trying times.
“We want to make a high-quality educational experience as affordable as possible and for as many students as possible,” said Tucker. “As a public institution, we also have an obligation to operate as efficiently and responsibly as we can, and we believe that we’ve outlined a budget that will meet all of these needs.”
Tucker said this will be the third year in a row that UWA has not increased tuition.
