ESU rolls out guaranteed, fixed four-year tuition rate

EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. - College isn't cheap but East Stroudsburg University said it wants to make it easier for students and parents to plan by rolling out a new, fixed guaranteed tuition rate for all incoming students.

The plan, called the Warrior Promise, guarantees students they'll pay the same amount without an increase for eight semesters.

The tuition rate was set by the Board of Governors in July.

David Bousquet, ESU’s Vice President of Enrollment, said transfer students who begin in the fall semester may choose to opt into the program as well

"It quickly became apparent that the annual increases in tuition shocked some people, surprised some people and placed a burden on almost everybody,” Bousquet said.

ESU said it hopes the plan will help students focus on their studies and not the cost of them. The university says it's the first public school in the state to offer a fixed, four-year guaranteed tuition rate.
