Trevecca officials announce tuition freeze for the 2021-2022 academic year

In a year that’s been filled with uncertainty, Trevecca wants to offer certainty to students and their families. University officials announced today that tuition rates will remain the same for the 2021-2022 academic year. 

The Trevecca Board of Trustees approved the action in meetings held virtually on Nov. 5. 

“Trevecca has been a Nashville fixture since 1901, and we’re certain about the University’s future in serving this community and producing graduates who make a difference in the world,” said Dr. Dan Boone, University president. “Trevecca is already one of the best values in our state, and this decision will continue to set us apart.” 

WalletHub recently listed Trevecca among top universities in Tennessee, in the personal finance website’s 2021 College and University Ranking. Seeking to determine top-performing schools at the lowest possible costs to undergraduates, WalletHub compared more than 1,000 higher-education institutions in the U.S. across 30 key measures. Thirteen Tennessee institutions were included in the ranking, with Trevecca ranking fifth.  

The only increase for the 2021-2022 academic year will be a small increase of $300 in room and board due to a new service provider in that area. 

“The decision to freeze tuition is the right thing to do at this time to help our students and their families,” Boone said. “We’re committed to providing high-quality education in a Christian context, seeking to shape and mentor the whole student.” 

That commitment hasn’t gone unnoticed. Earlier this year, the University was once again ranked as a national university in U.S. News and World Report’s annual “2021 Best Colleges,” making Trevecca the only Nazarene institution to receive the national ranking. Additionally, the Carnegie Foundation has classified Trevecca as a doctoral university, ranking the University among the top seven percent of higher education institutions nationwide. 

“Our core values shape who we are and the decisions we make,” Boone said. “It’s our hope that this tuition freeze is a blessing to our students and their families. We deeply believe in the value of the Trevecca experience and hope this helps more students experience it for themselves.”
