MCLA Introduces New Tuition Rate For New England Students

The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in North Adams, Massachusetts is introducing a new tuition rate for students from New England.

The college will now offer students from New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Connecticut, and Rhode Island a reduced regional rate. Gina Puc is MCLA’s Dean of Enrollment Management and Community Relations.

“So since MCLA is a public institution, we’re part of a group of institutions that report through the New England Board of Higher Education, and they’ve undergone some policy changes and now MCLA is able to offer an 85% tuition reduction to any resident applying to MCLA from New England. So this is an average savings of about $8,400 a year.”

New York and New England residents currently pay around $11,500 a year for tuition. The new rate will go into effect for the Fall 2020 semester.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production.
