Regent College Decreases Tuition as of May 1, 2012
Vancouver, BC, Canada, October 18, 2011 – Regent College President Rod Wilson announced today a decision to decrease tuition fees for the upcoming 2012-13 academic year. Regent will cut tuition rates by an average of 8.6% for credit courses, effective May 1, 2012. For the exact tuition rates, click here.
This move is a direct response to students’ increasing concerns about the high costs of post-secondary education, the escalating costs of living in Vancouver, and the precariousness of global financial markets that put students’ savings for education at risk. “Excellent education is built on three pillars—quality, accessibility, and affordability. While we want to avoid the current temptation to push accessibility to such a degree that quality inevitably suffers, it is crucial for Regent College to be sensitive to the issue of affordability.”
Every degree at Regent College will now be less expensive. And this will have a significant impact on making theological education more accessible, and on enabling Regent College to fulfill its mission. Regent was the first graduate school of theology in North America to make education of the laity its central focus, and remains committed to that mission. Now more than ever, the world needs thoughtful, informed, and relational leaders who will contribute to solving current global challenges. A Regent education is one of the best ways of equipping Christians for this task.
