Gas Prices One Reason Why Ancilla College Froze Tuition

The Ancilla Board of Trustees recently approved a decision to freeze tuition for the coming fall semester. Ancilla President, Dr. Ron May, was asked if part of the decision had to do with gasoline prices. He said that it was.

“Its a major challenge for our students,” stated Dr. May. “One of the things we have is an emergency fund and occasionally we have our students who need help with gas. Through a mechanism that we have put in place, we sometimes give them gas cards.”

And that figured into the tuition freeze.

“Gas prices figured into our decision to freeze tuition. We can’t control the price of gas, but we can control the tuition we charge at Ancilla.”

Gasoline prices factor into many things from going to work or going to school.
