Tuition to Rise for Delaware Nursing, Engineering Students

Posted: Feb 06, 2018 9:50 AM Updated:

NEWARK, Del. (AP)- The University of Delaware has announced plans to implement a tuition surcharge for students at its nursing, engineering and business schools.

The university announced the plans Monday as part of a broader plan to increase enrollment and hire more than 500 faculty over the next five to seven years.

School officials say the plan for differentiated tuition is driven by the fact that it costs more to educate students in nursing, engineering and business than it does for other majors.

Beginning in the fall, all three schools will implement a $1,000 yearly tuition surcharge. By the fall of 2020, the surcharge will increase to 1,500 for nursing, $2,500 for business and $4,000 for engineering.

Current students will receive a credit that partially offsets the increase.
