Letter from Provost Catherine Armour: Tuition Freeze for 2013-14

February 11, 2013

Dear Corcoran Community,

I’m writing to you with important and timely news: the Corcoran College of Art + Design has decided to freeze tuition rates for the 2013-14 school year. Students are our priority at the Corcoran, and we are so pleased to offer this real advantage to our community. With the federal government exploring proposals to cut Pell grants and other forms of financial aid, a tuition freeze will be welcome financial relief for our talented and dedicated students.

Were you tired of wondering where the magazines were in the Corcoran Library? So were we. That's why we've moved them as part of space re-design. More changes are to come, so please continue to excuse our dust as the semester begins.

You may notice a few changes at the Corcoran Library

Corcoran Library space planning

The Corcoran Library is conducting a partial re-design of our space over the break. Our goal is to open up more space and provide additional seating and study areas. Thanks to Operations and IT, we hope to have much accomplished before classes resume, but we will post notice of any potential continued disruptions.
