Work study increase nearly offsets tuition hike

February 16, 2005

If students work on campus at Lindenwood University, the school’s first tuition increase in four years will cost them only $100 per semester.

The university has issued a hefty increase in work study compensation—from $6 an hour to $8 an hour, or $600 annually. Students will now be paid $2,400 for 10 hours work a week over two semesters.

“We want everyone to have a good work ethic,” said President Dennis Spellmann. “Not only is it a core value here, but it will help students in placement when they graduate.”

The pay increase covers much of Lindenwood’s 7.1 percent tuition increase for full-time graduate and undergraduate students, effective with the fall 2005 semester.

“We are still the best value around,” said Spellmann. “Our cost is about half of most other private colleges and universities. Even our parking fee remains steady—at $1 a semester. Who can top that?”

Tuition for full-time students increases by $800 to $12,000 annually. The 7.1 percent increase also applies to room and board, which increases by $400 to $6,000 annually.

“This is the first tuition increase in four years for most of our students,” said Spellmann. “The quality, cost and convenience at Lindenwood are hard to beat. It’s why we’re the fastest-growing college or university in Missouri.”

Adult students studying in the accelerated LCIE program will see a 6 percent increase, with undergraduate tuition going to $265 credit hour, and graduate tuition going to $330 per credit hour.
