Are College Tuition Resets Catching On? - Opinion Piece

Josh Moody writes: While unique, St. Johns is not alone in scaling down tuition. In August both Robert Morris University and Oglethorpe University announced price-matching programs in an effort to compete with state flagship schools. Robert Morris is competing only with Pennsylvania schools for state residents, while Oglethorpe is open to all, meaning students can expect to pay anywhere from $18,499 to $5,500, depending on where they call home.
