Old Cooper Union Dead: Trustees Approve $20K Tuition

…at yesterday’s vote, the Board rejected the Working Group’s proposal, upholding a plan from April 2013 to charge half-price admission and adding need-based aid—a plan that sparked outrage and protest from alumni and students alike. "The Working Group plan puts forward a number of recommendations that are worth pursuing under any financial model," the statement read. "However, we believe that the contingencies and risks inherent in the proposals are too great to supplant the need for new revenue sources. Regrettably, tuitionremains the only realistic source of new revenue in the near future."
