RADNOR, Pa. (Nov. 11, 2011) – The Board of Trustees of Cabrini College has authorized a 12.5 percent reduction in undergraduate tuition and fees, effective fall 2012, and other significant moves to ensure that students and their families can plan for college costs through May 2015.
This plan for affordability, which will increase access for the middle class families Cabrini traditionally has served, includes:
As a significant benefit for returning students, Cabrini College will maintain merit scholarship awards at current levels. In addition, the College will work with its most needy students to keep Cabrini affordable for them.

“Cabrini College is financially strong and students will continue to experience the same extraordinary programs and faculty,” Cabrini President Marie Angelella George promised.
“The College will continue vigorously on its path to strengthen and add programs and faculty for both undergraduate and graduate programs, move forward as scheduled with implementation of Board-approved strategic and campus master plans, and continue providing undergraduate and graduate students with a values-based education that prepares them for successful lives and careers.”
“While other colleges have reduced tuition and fees recently, we believe that Cabrini College is the only institution to do so without reducing the dollar amount of scholarships for returning students,” said Dennis Kelly, vice president for Enrollment Management at Cabrini.
“The Board of Trustees believes strongly that this is the right thing to do – for students and for the College as a whole – as we seek to live our mission of providing an Education of the Heart,” said President George.
