Tuition Rate to Remain Steady for 2009-10 at Atlanta Christian College

Atlanta Christian College announced this week that its tuition rates for traditional students will not increase for the 2009-10 academic year. The College’s board of trustees unanimously approved the decision to keep tuition level in response to the economic challenges faced by many students and their families.

“We understand that a family who chooses a private education does so for unique reasons, and often at a personal sacrifice financially,” said Dean Collins, president of Atlanta Christian College. “With our decision to hold our rates flat for next year, we acknowledge to our current and prospective traditional students that we understand this difficult economy makes the choice of private education difficult.”

“As an institution, we are committed to maintaining our quality program while being sensitive to the financial pressures every family is facing in paying for college,” Collins continued.

The College has also introduced a revised merit-based scholarship program for incoming first-year and transfer traditional students, beginning with the fall 2009 semester. The revisions will result in a larger merit-based award for most accepted students.

“We are excited to expand our scholarship program in order to make our college affordable for students who have worked hard to attain academic success,” said Collins.

Atlanta Christian College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) to award the associate and baccalaureate degrees.
