RMC waiving tuition for students about to graduate

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - College tuition for students can be costly, but now Randolph Macon College in Ashland wants to help pay for students who may be on the edge of graduating.

Tuition, fees and room and board at the private school tend to cost students and parents about $39,000 a year.

The Times-Dispatch reports that for any student not able to graduate within four years, the college will waive tuition costs for any extra classes needed to graduate.

There is a catch - students must meet GPA requirements and meet with their advisors.

The idea is to make sure all of its students graduate within a reasonable amount of time.

Right now, 95 percent of its students graduate in four years.
