(Springfield, MO) -- Students at Cox College of Nursing won't have to face higher tuition bills right now. The college's Board of Trustees has voted to leave tuition and fees at the current level for the time being, because of the economic situation.
Cox College president Dr. Ann Brett said instead of raising tuition at a time when students are under more financial stress and credit is harder to get, the school will look for more places to trim operating costs.
"We are scrutinizing employee travel, we've put hiring for some open positions on hold, and we're asking everyone to think twice about purchases to make sure they are critical," Dr. Brett said in a news release issued Tuesday.
Cox College currently has about 600 students enrolled in its nursing programs.
