The freeze is effective immediately for the 2020-’21 academic year. It applies to all programs, except for the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) degree, which received a tuition freeze last year.

“Gardner-Webb recognizes that higher education is vital to preparing for the workplace,” noted Mavia Lee, assistant vice president for digital learning. “We also understand that affordability is a pressing issue. That’s why we are taking the stand to address this need.”

GOAL—DCP provides undergraduate studies to meet the educational needs of adult learners. Twelve bachelor’s degree programs are offered completely online, allowing students flexibility in their education without sacrificing quality. Several programs have been recognized for exceptional web-based learning opportunities by independent online education resources. Additionally, GOAL-DCP students are paired with a success coach, who provides personalized academic advising, administrative support, and mentoring for the duration of the program.

“While other institutions seem content with contributing to the runaway costs of a college degree, we at Gardner-Webb have heard the concerns of adult learners in our community, in our state, and beyond,” affirms GWU President Dr. William M. Downs. “This tuition freeze should help make GWU the institution of first choice for those students who want to complete their degrees online, with the help of world-class faculty, and at an affordable price.”

Fall registration opens March 2. For more information, call your Success Coach or 704-406-4484.
