69 Colleges with Money-Saving Tuition Guarantees


College is already expensive enough so when your college decides to increase its tuition rate by thousands of dollars each year, it is understandable why you might be upset.

Unfortunately, this is a common scenario.

This year, the average private college increased its tuition rate by 3.7% and the average public college by 2.9%, amounting to up to $3,000 per year or $12,000 over four years. Luckily, some schools are trying to reverse this trend offering incoming students tuition guarantees.

A tuition guarantee is when a college gives all incoming freshman a tuition rate and promises to keep that rate the same for them during all four years of college even if the official price of tuition increases. Some of the schools on the list below guarantee a tuition lock for all entering students. Others require students to select a tuition guarantee plan which usually locks in your tuition at a higher rate than the published price during your freshman year but gives you a rate that is forecast to be significantly lower than the price tag during your senior year, resulting in net savings over four years.

You can find each college’s specific policy on the links below.

Ultimately, choosing a tuition guarantee college will give you increased predictability in planning your college finances and help you keep student loans to a minimum. Be sure to grab a college papers for sale a apply to one of the following:
