Saint Augustine’s University Reduces Its Tuition and Fees by 15% Making It One of the More Affordable Private Colleges in the Region

February 24, 2020—RALEIGH, NC—Saint Augustine’s University (SAU) is reducing its tuition by 15% starting in the fall of 2020, the University announced on Monday. When most institutions of higher education are raising prices, SAU is addressing the concerns of families who are looking for relief in the area of affordability. The lower cost will apply to in-state and out-of-state, new, and returning students.

“In today’s economy we are painfully aware that tuition cost is the primary factor that separates prospective students from their dream of pursuing higher education,” said Dr. Gaddis Faulcon, Interim President of Saint Augustine’s University. “We are keenly aware of our parents’ and students’ desire to have access to higher education that is affordable but does not compromise on quality and credibility. This tuition adjustment is in direct response to what we see on our campus.”

The cost for non-boarding students to attend SAU will go down from $12,890 to $10,957 a savings of $1,934. The University is pleased to continue to offer academic and performance-based scholarships and financial aid packages for qualifying students. With a high percentage of SAU students receiving some federal aid, the University is still committed to providing the best and the most affordable education in the southeast. The liberal arts institution offers 20 majors including a Continuing Education program for evening and weekend adult learners as well as an online curriculum.
