BRISTOL, R.I. (AP) — Roger Williams University has announced it will freeze tuition for the third year in a row.

The Providence Journal reports that the university also says it will continue a four-year tuition guarantee for students arriving in the 2014-15 academic year. Tuition will not increase for students who remain continuously enrolled.

Undergraduate day students entering next fall will pay $29,976.

University President Donald J. Farish said he will freeze tuition as long as it can be done financially. If circumstances require an increase, he promised to keep it low.

The university said it welcomed an incoming class this fall that not only exceeded its target but is one of the academically strongest in years.
