[two_third padding=”0 30px 0 10px”]Howard University last year offered a large carrot to its students to encourage them to graduate on time.
This April, the school announced it has begun making good on its promise to offer 50 percent refunds on students’ final semester’s tuition to those who attain their degrees within four years. The rebates, which average about $5,750 each, are currently being made via cash, credit card or installment plan now through May graduation.
“Howard University has an unwavering commitment to the needs of its students. We are excited to offer our students this financial rebate as a reward for accomplishing their goals on time,” said Howard University President Dr. Wayne A. I. Frederick in a statement. “We certainly hope some financial relief is provided as well.” [/two_third][one_third_last padding=”0 0px 0 10px”] [otw_shortcode_info_box border_type=”bordered” border_color_class=”otw-red-border” border_style=”bordered” background_color_class=”otw-red” border_color=”FF0000″ background_color=”FF0000″]
