As the cost of attending college continues to increase, it’s uncommon to hear about schools that are lowering tuition costs. But that’s exactly what Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art plans to do.
Cooper Union is a private college located in New York City. Established in 1859, the school offered free tuition for undergraduate students for over a century. Undergraduate students were given scholarships that covered 100 percent of their tuition, part of Cooper Union’s promise that college is “as free as air and water.”
