Rowan Students Can Expect A Tuition Decrease Thanks To COVID-19
College students across the country have been waiting with bated breath to hear what's to become of their 2020-2021 school year.
Will they be attending classes in-person? Will everything transition to online learning? The list of questions gets longer every day. Finally, some South Jersey college students have at least one answer to probably the most important question of them all.
NJ.com reports that Rowan University will reduce tuition by 10% as a result of all the issues imposed upon students due to the coronavirus. Also, freshmen will now be offered an option to forego moving to campus altogether in favor of a completely virtual first year of university. If they should choose the online route, freshmen will have the option of earning a bit more scholarship money. This is great news for those that were planning to live on campus that now have their first year essentially ripped away from them.
Hopefully, next year the collegiate education experience will look a bit more normal, but at least the tuition reduction will provide students with some sort of comfort and relief in the midst of all the unknown.
