Alderson Broaddus freezes fees for another year
PHILIPPI, W.Va. -- Alderson Broaddus is extending a freeze on costs for undergraduate students to help them get a college education.
University President Richard Creehan says the three-year commitment that began in the 2011-12 school year will now run through the spring of 2015.
Alderson Broaddus' comprehensive fees include tuition, room and board and a general fee. When the freeze was first announced, the costs totaled $29,000 a year.
Creehan says the university is making "a genuine effort to help parents.'' He says A-B is giving students a private school experience at a public school cost.
