Catawba Trustees Approve Three Percent Increase in Tuition, Room & Board for '13-'14

November 05, 2012

Category: Students


TuitionCatawba College students will see a modest three percent increase in tuition, room and board costs for the 2013-2014 academic year. College trustees made that decision at their October board meeting rather than in the spring, in order to give both current and prospective students and their families plenty of time to plan for next year.

The increase, according to Catawba President Brien Lewis, was based in part on a forecast of the Higher Education Price Index (HEPI) for 2013-2014. HEPI is an inflationary tracking measure similar in concept to the Consumer Price Index but based on the basket of goods paid for by colleges and universities.

To give Catawba's 3% increase some context, Lewis noted that UNC-Chapel Hill is in the process of recommending a 6.5% increase for next year. The UNC-Chapel Hill proposal now moves to the UNC Board of Trustees before going to the UNC-system Board of Governors and then to the N.C. General Assembly.

Following is a complete list of Catawba's rates and fees for the 2013-2014 academic year:
