Winthrop Board of Trustees Will Not Raise Undergraduate Tuition for 2021-22

June 25, 2021

HIGHLIGHTS

  • In-state students will pay $7,653 a semester, while out-of-state students will be charged $14,818 a semester. 
  • Online Graduate School rates will remain the same while campus-based Graduate School rates will increase by 1 percent.

ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – The Winthrop University Board of Trustees voted unanimously on June 25 for no tuition increase for the second year in a row.

Tuition for undergraduate students will remain at the same rate for the 2021-22 academic year as the previous year. In-state students will pay $7,653 a semester, while out-of-state students will be charged $14,818 a semester. 

Board Chair Glenn McCall said trustees want to keep a college education affordable for students as the university enters its 136th academic year. As Winthrop heads into a second year affected by the COVID pandemic, McCall said the university will rely some on federal pandemic dollars to cover its shortfall.

Online Graduate School rates will remain the same while campus-based Graduate School rates will increase by 1 percent.

Winthrop room fees, which vary according to the type of housing chosen, will increase 2.4 percent compared to last year. Meal plans also will go up 3.5 percent over last year’s rate. Winthrop has contractual obligations with its food service provider, Sodexo, to cover its cost of living increases.

Students will play the same fees as last year, except for the health fee which will increase from $195 to $200 in order to ensure adequate health and counseling support for students during the pandemic. 

Board of Trustees members opted to wait until the state of South Carolina finishes its budget before coming up with the university’s spending plan. Members expect to approve Winthrop budget’s in late July. 

More information on tuition and fees is available on the Cashier's Office website or contact Judy Longshaw, news and media services manager at longshawj@winthrop.edu.
