Northeastern U. gives 25 percent tuition break to parents
ABC News - 10/17/2015
Come to campus for the family weekend festivities, stay for a graduate degree.
That’s the idea behind Northeastern University’s newest tuition discount, which will give a 25 percent break to the parents and siblings of undergraduate students if they pursue a degree in almost any of the school’s graduate programs. Northeastern said it will unroll the discount starting in spring 2016.
Officially called the Lifetime Learning Membership, it’s meant to show parents that the university is looking out for them, too.
“We wanted to provide opportunities so they can continue to invest in their career goals and invest their lifelong learning goals,” said Sundar Kumarasamy, vice president of enrollment management at Northeastern, a private university of 20,000 students in Boston. “We don’t want to them to be delayed.”
