Tuition reduction: Tuition rates will be reduced for all undergraduate students (current and incoming) in autumn 2021. New autumn 2021 students who might have limited their options to public institutions will receive the opportunity to consider SPU at a lower cost.
Tuition Commitment: Under SPU’s Tuition Commitment, current undergraduate students will receive the same tuition cost for the 2021–22 school year, after renewable SPU grants and scholarships are considered. That’s a 0% increase in tuition for 2021–22, which will have a compounding, lasting positive impact on tuition costs in future years.
SPU also guarantees that annual tuition increase through senior status or three years, whichever comes first, will be no more than 4% (historically, tuition has risen about 5% each year). This provides students and families with a known, lower tuition cost and will give the opportunity to better plan.
Free course: Current undergraduate students who are continuously enrolled from autumn 2020 until graduation will receive one free course after graduation. This can be a standalone undergraduate course or a free graduate course, should students be admitted into an SPU graduate program.
