Acadia to Lower Tuition, Increase IT

January 24, 2007

AcadiaU announced yesterday that, starting in September 2008, tuition will be down and students will no longer be required to lease a notebook computer through the school's Acadia Advantage program. 50% of current university students already own a notebook when they come to an institution, and the remaining students will be required to acquire a laptop that meets the school's specs. Ten years ago, few students had their own computers and the university met this challenge. Now the school will focus on providing IT services that meet student academic and communication needs. Acadia will also be following almost all other universities by releasing a breakdown of its pricing that separates tuition from fees, allowing easier comparison to other schools. Acadia Release
