Wells College is dropping the published cost of its tuition for all new and returning students by 25% for the fall of 2019. For all new and returning students, the published tuition will be $29,400 for the 2019–20 year. This new tuition stands in contrast to the 2018–19 published tuition of $39,200.
Wells College's new pricing better reflects what students actually pay, after scholarships and other forms of financial aid are factored in — which is especially important given that 99% of Wells students receive some form of financial aid.
"Our goal with this reset is to ultimately attract more students to Wells, yielding more resources to further support this vibrant, engaged campus community," said President Gibralter. "Our alumnae and alumni tell us that a Wells degree gave them an edge in life that they would not have otherwise had. I am confident that this tuition reset will open up that same unparalleled opportunity for an even greater number of future Wells graduates," he added.
The College, which celebrates its 150th anniversary this year, remains firmly committed to providing a personalized, hands-on education to every student. This tuition reset comes on the heels of a sustained, multi-year effort by the College to improve the student experience.
