Big Price Cut for Apollo's Western International
Western International University, a for-profit institution owned by the Apollo Group, has slashed its tuition by 51 percent. The university's bachelor's degrees, which are aimed at working adults, will cost $30,400. Master's degrees will be $11,950. Western, which enrolls 2,500 students, is also offering a "test drive" in which the first two online courses will cost $200 each. Several for-profits have cut prices recently amid slumping enrollments, including ITT Technical Institute and Strayer University.
