Milligan sees lowest tuition increase in 30 years

MILLIGAN, Tenn. (Nov. 13, 2020) — Milligan University President Dr. Bill Greer announced the university’s tuition increase for the 2021-2022 academic year will be the lowest in 30 years.

The university’s traditional undergraduate cost, including tuition, fees, and standard room and board, will only increase by 1.49% for the next academic year.

“We have an ongoing commitment to keep Milligan affordable for students and families,” said Greer. “With the uncertainties of COVID-19 and its financial impact on many, we knew it was critically important to maintain as flat of a tuition change as possible.”

The university continues to offer a highly ranked education at a competitively affordable price. U.S. News & World Report ranks Milligan among the top 20 regional universities in the South and among the top five in value.

Milligan’s total cost, expected to be $43,640 for the 2021-2022 academic year, remains well below the national average for private colleges, and Milligan’s room and board rates are the lowest in the region. Additionally, 99% of students at Milligan receive aid, making the net cost they actually pay considerably less than Milligan’s sticker price.

Boasting strong retention and graduation rates, Milligan students are more likely to graduate on time, saving them time and money. Within six to 12 months of graduation, 98% of Milligan graduates are employed or enrolled in graduate school. Milligan students’ average federal loan debt at graduation continues to be well below the national average.

“Our administration continues to prioritize being an institution that demonstrates good stewardship and a commitment of quality, which we will not sacrifice,” said Greer. “Milligan is stronger than ever, thanks to God’s guidance and faithfulness and the support of our alumni and friends.”
