Trinity University students should not be charged full tuition. We should not be charged for many services that we won't be able to take advantage of due to social distancing, remote learning and COVID. Please join me in signing and sharing this petition to ask the university to adjust their tuition price accordingly. We want the tuition price for 2020-2021 academic year to decrease by at LEAST 15%. The pandemic has already created financial burdens for many students and it makes no sense to be paying full tuition for a hybrid of remote learning. 

Here is what other comparable colleges are doing:

(from https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2020/04/27/tuition-freezes-and-cuts-show-colleges-and-universities-are-face-downward-price

"Christopher Newport University in Virginia announced it will not increase tuition, fees and room and board for 2020-21. Delaware Valley University in Pennsylvania froze undergraduate tuition and fees. The University System of Maine launched a program targeted at students affected by the coronavirus outbreak. Under the program, called the Maine Welcome, the system promised resident tuition status to “any successful U.S. college student or law student displaced by a COVID-19-related permanent closure of a U.S. institution of higher education.”

In Ohio, Franciscan University of Steubenville rolled out a plan covering 100 percent of fall 2020 tuition for new on-campus undergraduates, after scholarships and grants.

Perhaps more significant than any other move was one announced by Southern New Hampshire University, a private nonprofit with massive online enrollment and scale. It announced plans to cut tuition for campus-based learning models by 61 percent by 2021, down to $10,000 per year. Southern New Hampshire is also offering scholarships for all incoming freshmen enrolling on campus that will cover the full cost of their first-year tuition."

Trinity University, do better for your students.
