Manor College in Jenkintown will not increase costs next year for its full-time students, the college announced Tuesday.

Both tuition and room and board will remain the same as this year, $15,950 for tuition and $7,500 for room and board. That's a total of $23,450 for the 2016-17 school year.

Manor has about 600 full-time and part-time students, as well as continuing education students. The cost freeze applies to full-time students.

"In an era when students are concerned about costs and debt, we're making a statement in our community and in the world of higher education," Jonathan Peri, Manor's new president, said in a statement. "Manor cares about students and understands household economics."

Manor College is a private two-year institution that was founded in 1947 by the Byzantine Ukrainian Sisters of Saint Basil the Great. It offers transfer and career oriented programs in Allied Health, Science & Mathematics; Business, Technology and Legal Studies and Liberal Arts to traditional age and adult students.

La Salle University earlier this year announced it would freeze tuition for undergraduate students next year.
