BRISTOL, Tenn., Feb. 17, 2016 – King University’s interim president Richard A. Ray,
Ph.D., says the University is pleased to be able to maintain room and board costs
for on-campus students at the same rate at which they have been since 2011-12. However,
King is moving forward to adopt a slight increase of three percent for tuition and
fees only for the 2016-17 academic year.
“Affordability of a college education is always a concern for both students and parents.
King’s executive leadership and board of trustees have worked together to develop
a fee structure that allows students an affordable option to maximize financial aid
opportunities and decrease post-graduate debt,” says Ray.
King’s Student Financial Services diligently works to provide students with the maximum
amount of financial aid possible. Currently, more than 98% of students receive financial
aid assistance at King. The combination of loan and grant opportunities through federal
and state funding sources, as well as additional grant and scholarship assistance
through King’s Annual Fund for Scholarships and Programs, continues to make education
at King University affordable.
“Colleges across the nation have been experiencing increased costs because of weakened
economic conditions,” said Rob Littleton, Ed.D., vice president for Student Affairs.
“Coupled with the significant amount of financial aid available to King University
students, we believe this fee structure maintains King as a remarkable value in higher
education. Our goal is to provide the best resources available to assist our students
in completing their degrees with as little debt possible.”
King University has recently received numerous recognitions including being ranked
by U.S. News & World Report as one of the “Best Regional Universities” in the South
for the 26th consecutive year. Additionally, The Princeton Review recommended King for the 12th straight year as one of the “Best Colleges in the Southeast.” King has also been
named to the coveted Military Friendly® Schools list for the seventh straight year
by Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transition into
