Affordability. Accessibility. Stability.
These guiding principles led us to implement the Anchored Tuition Pledge, our assurance to hold full-time tuition in place, at one rate with each incoming class.
By “anchoring tuition,” our students pay the same full-time tuition rate for the duration of their education at Hope. The tuition rate they start with is the tuition rate they end with. The Anchored Tuition Pledge provides confidence and financial peace of mind when a family budgets for their student’s time at Hope. It also means that students’ renewable scholarships retain more of their value over the course of a four-year education.
And it’s also the first Hope Forward initiative that impacts ALL students.
The Anchored Tuition Pledge is yet another way that Hope College stands apart as we begin to correct the broken business model of higher education. For decades, the rate of college tuition has risen at double the rate of inflation.
With the Anchored Tuition Pledge, we are saying: No more. We vow to hold your full-time tuition rate constant because we are committed to the ambition of making Hope more affordable and accessible, both now and in the future.
How the Anchored Tuition Pledge will work in 2023-24:
Incoming full-time students (first time at Hope) — The tuition rate will be $39,990. This tuition rate will remain the same for a student’s
time at Hope.
Returning full-time students (second year students) — The tuition rate will be $37,990. This tuition rate will remain the same for a student’s time at Hope.
Returning full-time students (third+ year students) — The tuition rate will be $36,300, the same as last year. This tuition rate will remain the same for a student’s time at Hope.
(*Eligibility for aid is reassessed on a year-to-year basis. Need-based financial aid awards can fluctuate.)
(**Room rates are based on double-occupancy, standard residence hall housing, and board rates are based upon a 15-meal plan. Both rates can vary depending on a student’s housing and meal plan choices.)
