Gordon College continues to have one of the lowest tuitions in the nation among public, 4-year schools, according to a recent report by the U.S. Department of Educatio’Our goal is to offer high quality, accessible degree programs that are affordable yet prepare our graduates for the workforce needs of the state,’ said Tamara Boatwright, Gordon College spokesperson. It costs a student $3,017 per academic year to attend Gordon College, according to the report. The national average for a public, 4-year school is $6,669 per academic year. The U.S. Department of Education has updated several lists on http://collegecost.ed.gov, highlighting institutions with the highest and lowest tuition and net price, and those schools where prices are rising the fastest. A total of 4,165 institutions are included on the combined lists.”We want to arm students and parents with the information they need to make smart educational choices,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. “Students need to know up front how much college will actually cost them instead of waiting to find out when the first student loan bill arrives. These lists are a major step forward in unraveling the mystery of higher education pricing.”Institutions report data on their tuition and fees and net price annually through the Department’s Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). Additional updated data on individual schools is available on http://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator.
