At a time when colleges and universities across the country are preparing to announce tuition increases, Franklin Pierce University will be freezing tuition for the 2010-11 academic year for the undergraduate College at Rindge.

“In addition to freezing tuition,” said Dr. James Birge, President of Franklin Pierce University, “the University has maintained its commitment to offering extremely generous financial aid that will be awarded to students with University scholarships and grants budgeted at nearly $18 million.”

“At Franklin Pierce University we recognize that during these uncertain economic times, families have questions about whether or not a private college education is possible,” said Kenneth Ferreira, Executive Director of Student Financial Services. “We are taking deliberate steps to ensure that the quality and distinctive private education that is only offered at Franklin Pierce University remains within all students’ reach.”

For 2010-11, Franklin Pierce will offer financial aid in the form of grants or scholarships to every student accepted into the undergraduate College at Rindge, according to Ferreira.

“We are proud to offer awards at the time of admission that range from a maximum of $17,000 to a minimum of $7,500 based on admission criteria alone,” he said.

The University has pursued a number of cost-cutting initiatives in recent months to save money and to help make the tuition freeze possible. They include the installation of new state-of-the-art biomass thermal heating units using locally-sourced wood pellet fuel.

Franklin Pierce University will hold a winter Open House on Sunday, Feb., 21 at the main campus in Rindge, N.H. for prospective students and their families. Students may register by calling 1.800.437.0048, via e-mail at or on the Open House Web page.
