June 15, 2020—In an effort to recognize the unprecedented financial challenges facing many students and their families due to COVID-19, the Marist College Board of Trustees has voted to approve a zero tuition increase for the 2020-21 academic year.

“We know that the global health pandemic has caused widespread disruption and hardship, and many families are struggling,” said Marist President Dennis Murray. “We are committed to assisting students during this time and to helping keep a Marist education within reach.”

Consistently named a “Best Value College” by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, Marist joins a growing number of colleges and universities nationwide who have committed to zero tuition increases for the coming year.

Last month, the College also announced the formation of the Student Emergency Fund, which will provide one-time grants for returning undergraduate students whose families have been hardest hit by this crisis. Established by a member of Marist’s Board of Trustees, more than $200,000 has been raised to date.
