(Highland Heights, KY) - Northern Kentucky University has announced a tuition freeze for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters. During Tuesday’s virtual Spring Forum, President Ashish Vaidya announced that NKU will keep undergraduate tuition at the same rate for the upcoming 2020-21 academic year. NKU’s undergraduate in-state tuition is $413 per credit hour, totaling $9,912 annually for full time students.
“There is so much uncertainty right now due to COVID-19, and freezing the tuition rate is one way we can provide stability for our students,” said President Vaidya. “In recognizing the impact on our students, we believe freezing the tuition shows our commitment to both our students and the region.”
In addition to freezing tuition, the university is also holding parking fees flat for the campus.
NKU moved to virtual operations and instructions on March 26 for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester and summer session. The university is processing over $3 million in refunds/credits for parking, housing and dining fees for the Spring 2020 semester. The university has also established a Student Emergency Fund, which has assisted 199 students since the COVID-19 outbreak.
NKU is beginning to review the scenarios for the Fall 2020 semester.
