2 more colleges just got cheaper (how much do you love tuition resets?)

Here’s a surprise: Some colleges are getting cheaper.

Rosemont College, a small liberal arts school outside of Philadelphia, is the latest school to announce that it’s cutting tuition. Tuition and fees will drop by 43% beginning in the 2016-2017 school year. The college said it hoped to make a Rosemont education accessible to more families and to bring clarity to a college financing process it calls “broken.” This comes on the heels of Utica College’s recent announcement that its tuition and fees will be reduced by 42% also starting in fall 2016.  USA Today
