In an email to students last week, the GC President’s Council announced new tuition, room and board rates for the 2014-15 school year. Next year’s rates will be $29,700 for tuition, $5,200 for room and $4,500 for board, coming to a total of $39,400 for the school year. The cost reflects a 3.8 percent increase from last year but is the lowest percentage increase for the college since 1999. In citing reasons for the rise, the Board said the cost reflects campus improvements and technology upgrades, as well as higher operating expenses with faculty and staff salaries, health care and transportation costs.
