Cabrini College will join a growing number of schools that have made standardized test scores optional for admission — and it will freeze tuition, fees and room and board costs for next year, officials announced Thursday.
Tuition for full-time undergraduate students will remain at $28,932 for 2015-16 and fees at $910, maintaining a promise that the Radnor-based college made previously to keep tuition and fees under $30,000 until May of this year. The college, which enrolls 1,300 undergraduate and 1,000 graduate students, has frozen tuition in the past.
Total costs including room and board for next year will be $41,868.
"By freezing tuition and adopting a test-optional policy, the College is doing what it can to ensure that a Cabrini education remains affordable-and accessible-to motivated students of all backgrounds," President Donald B. Taylor said in a statement.
Students will have the option of submitting SAT and ACT scores beginning with students who apply this spring for the fall semester. Temple University and Bryn Mawr College both announced in the last year that they would go test score optional.
