Converse Answers the Call for Affordability
Families today are concerned that rising tuition prices are putting a high-quality college education out of reach. Converse has been listening, and we’ve responded with a bold move that makes us not only one of the most affordable four-year private universities in the region, but also comparable in price to premier public universities nationwide.
Beginning fall 2014, for full-time students in the traditional undergraduate program, Converse will “reset” its tuition to $16,500, a 43% reduction from the 2013 tuition of $29,124.

Converse is unique in providing a private college education at a public-university price. But that’s just the start. Our net cost drops even lower for students who receive scholarships and financial aid. Now, factor in that Converse students are twice as likely to graduate in four years than their peers at public institutions - meaning a year or more of savings for you.
Compare the real cost of a Converse education with the advantages and outcomes reported by our grads, and the takeaway is clear. In terms of both quality and cost, Converse offers unmatched value.
