The University of the Cumberlands announced they will be cutting tuition to help students stay away from student loans and debt. UC President Larry Cockrum says the school is moving from a high-tuition, high-discount model to a low-tuition, low-discount model. He says they understand the affordability of college is hard on working-class families, which is a major part of why the tuition is being changed. The tuition will move from $23,000 to $9,875 starting fall of 2019. Students graduating before this takes effect say while they will not be able to reap the benefits of the change, they are happy for students that will.
