An anonymous benefactor has sent the Crystal Fjord University Foundation a multi-million dollars donation. We are required to drop our tuition for the next five years or return the money! Of course, we are not going to return the money. Instead of the previous in-state versus out-of-state tuition structure with additional lab fees for some courses, we are now offering all of our students one lower rate. Full-time students taking 12-16 credits per semester will now pay $3,000 per semester, with part-time students paying only $250 per credit. This is incredibly low for universities in our area, making our community’s private not-for-profit university’s tuition less than what the nearby large public college charges its students. We understand that this is still too high for some of our students and will continue to assist anyone who asks to obtain financial aid. Our Student Life Department maintains a large database of financial aid services including federal programs for all United States residents, state programs for in-state residents, and private grants available to everyone — including students in our new online degree programs. Now is a perfect time to join the Crystal Fjord University community!
This Crystal Fjord University site is being developed to demonstrate how WordPress.com can be used as a learning platform. We are excited to show how a small local university can expand its student base to include online students who either do not live in the community or whose work and home responsibilities make attending traditional “brick and mortar” colleges impossible. At Crystal Fjord University, student success is our top-most obligation.
