Nebraska University President Ted Carter announced Thursday that all Nebraska campuses will be freezing tuition rates for the academic years of 2021-2022 and 2022-2023.

“We can’t afford not to do this,” President Carter says during his online conference with “Nebraska Promise.’

The two-year tuition freeze will be effective to all university students and programs – undergraduate, graduate, Ph.D., on-campus and online students. “Another step to provide predictability for students & families,” Carter said.

President Carter says that a full breakdown of how the university can afford to accomplish this will be available in June at the Board of Regents meeting, but that Nebraska Promise has a ‘price tag.’

Carter also touched on the university’s intentions to remain open for fall classes, stating that protective measures will be in place to ensure the safety of staff and students. The measures include testing, monitoring class sizes, physically spreading out classes across campuses, and maintaining a plethora of online courses.

This is the first tuition freeze since the 1970s.
