The Texas Christian University Board of Trustees today announced that the university will not raise tuition for the 2021-2022 academic year in recognition of the profound challenges students and their families have faced in 2020. The decision was made during the regularly scheduled fall Board of Trustees meeting.
In a letter to students and families to share the impactful news, Chancellor Victor J. Boschini, Jr. acknowledged the unprecedented financial burdens the pandemic has imposed on many, as well as the innovation and sacrifice made by the Horned Frog community to continue to deliver TCU’s mission with excellence.
“The challenges of 2020 have profoundly affected our community. Students, parents, extended families, faculty and staff have personally and perhaps professionally felt the impact of this most unusual year,” Chancellor Boschini stated. “At TCU, equal to the uncertainty that all have experienced is optimism – unwavering, expansive, optimism for the future of TCU and our community.”
In response to the pandemic, TCU has provided additional financial assistance and support for students as well as necessary investments in people, technology and infrastructure to offer a safe environment conducive for academic development.
“Horned Frogs will continue to make a difference in the world and for the world. We take our responsibility to our community seriously and hope this announcement reinforces the gravity of our commitment to you,” Chancellor Boschini, said.
Since the start of the pandemic, the University committed to providing an additional $65 million in financial assistance to support TCU students and families. Students are encouraged to contact the TCU Office of Scholarships and Student Financial Aid for more information.
