Cornish College reduces tuition 20 percent


​Corinne Wheeler was on the bus commuting to the Cornish College of Arts when she opened her email and got the news: her tuition would be 20 percent cheaper next year.

“I was like, oh my god,” she said. “I was in shock. I sent a screenshot to my parents ... and they were freaking out about it.”

Cornish is now among an increasing number of private colleges and liberal arts schools that aren’t just freezing their tuition rates, but reducing them all together.
