U. of Iowa Law School Slashes Sticker Price
- A California law school ends discount pricing
- Interstate Commerce
- Out-of-state enrollment decreases minority, low-income student enrollment
- For-profit Grand Canyon University enrolls a growing number of undocumented students
- Small private colleges steeply cut their sticker price, but will it drive down college costs?
The University of Iowa College of Law will dramatically cut prices in an effort to attract more students in a weak legal market and reduce student debt. The state's Board of Regents approved a plan to cut the law school's sticker price by 18 percent for new and continuing Iowa residents and incoming out-of-state students starting in fall 2014. The reductions, approved Thursday, mean a $7,750 a year reduction for nonresident students to $39,500, and a cut of $4,309 for resident students, to $21,965.
