Harrison Lowers Tuition on 9 Programs –

Indiana-based Harrison College has announced it will be cutting tuition on some of its degree programs by 10%.

The Tuition Reduction Program, which will go into effect beginning with the school’s winter term in January 2013, applies to nine programs, including the Bachelor Science in Business Management. Additionally, with Harrison’s tuition freeze program, students will be locked into the reduced tuition rate until they graduate.

“A lot of people are expressing their concerns about the rising cost of higher education in this country, and we share that concern, Dennis A. Trinkle, Harrison College Provost and Chief Academic Officer, said in a press release. “We decided now is the time to move past the discussion stage and take action.”

The programs chosen to be included in the Tuition Reduction Program were identified as areas that provide training for careers which will help drive the state’s economy in the future, according to Trinkle.

“We want to do our part to make sure Indiana’s workforce is appropriately educated so that we can keep those jobs in the state and, hopefully, help attract new employers to Indiana,” Trinkle said.

Harrison College is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent College and Schools, and is currently a candidate for regional accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
