Reset to Reemerge Initiative
Martin University has announced our Reset and Reemerge Triple A Program. Triple A stands for Accessible, Affordable, and Applicable and is set to transform how the university makes quality education available to all. This initiative ensures that Martin University is responding to the need of potential traditional and non-traditional students to benefit from an Accessible, Affordable, and Applicable four-year degree. Much of this is in response to President Biden Administration's efforts to address the skyrocketing cumulative federal student loan debt of more than $1.6 trillion. Not only will Martin University educate and support current and former students with empowering information regarding student loan forgiveness, the Reset and Reemerge Initiative seeks to ensure that future students are encouraged to complete their education without incurring crushing student loan debt.
The Reset to Reemerge Initiative consists of three pillars:
Martin University’s Tuition Reduction Program: Up to 45% of tuition fees to be reduced for students at Martin University
Banded tuition rates to encourage higher persistence rates by taking more classes to finish with less debt (12-18 credit hours)
Corporate partner special tuition rate
Will make martin university more affordable
Martin University Responds with College Affordability
According to the National College Attainment Network, only 23 percent of public four-year institutions and 41 percent of public two-year institutions were affordable for the average Pell Grant recipient, as of the 2018-19 academic year. The increasing cost of college and the amount of student loan debt can have a major negative impact on the lives and futures of students, families, and their communities.
The white house student-loan-forgiveness announcement, which will discharge as much as $20,000 for federal borrowers who receive Pell Grants (and as much as $10,000 for other federal borrowers), will reduce student loan debt by billions and make a substantial difference in the lives of a large number of borrowers.
Without critical changes, this one-time relief initiative will not prevent future students from sliding back into debt. To that end, Martin University's board of trustees and administration took the bold step to help our students reach their goals of earning a quality education. Our students will begin to feel the impact of up to a forty-five percent reduction in tuition fees beginning January 1, 2023.
