Central College’s rates for tuition, and room and board increased just 3.95% for 2013-2014. Thats the lowest increase for the college in 40 years, and well below the national average of 7.5%. Tuition costs will be $30,700 with additional cost of almost $10,000 for room and board. To meet the extra expenses, the college will increase the amount of financial aid given out. Last year nearly $21.5 million in financial aid was given out to students.
