College is expensive. Costs of postsecondary education plague may deter students from continuing their education, and the fret over finances plagues many students and families. Fortunately, the St. Francis College’s 19th President, Miguel Martinez-Saenz is aware of the concern. On Tuesday October 21, SFC students received an email declaring a tuition freeze for the 2018-2019 academic year.

President Martinez-Saenz wrote:

“I want to share some exciting news about our commitment to keeping your education accessible and affordable. The rising cost of our tuition has been a growing burden on many of you and your families. We share the responsibility for that financial burden, and we have responsibility, as Franciscans and educators, to live our Mission by providing a quality accessibly-priced education to all our students. I am pleased to tell you that our Board of Trustees has approved a TUITION FREEZE for the upcoming 2018-2019 academic year.”

On behalf of the student body, thank you President Martinez-Saenz!
