Trinity Washington University uses COVID Funds to Clear Unpaid Balances for 400 Students

You wake up one day, and your student balance is gone?

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, Trinity Washington University has used their COVID-19 relief funds to pay off the balances of nearly 400 undergraduate students, at an average of $4,583 per student. The goal is to provide their students with a clean slate to enter the fall 2021 school year with.

This comes after Trinity Washington suspended their policy during the pandemic of students being unable to register for new classes with an unpaid balance of $4,000 or more.

The takeaway? How many students are we losing to drop-outs, not based on lack of interest, but purely a temporary inability for payment?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
