PHILIPPI, W.Va. -- Alderson Broaddus University is extending a freeze on costs for undergraduate students to help them get a college education.
University President Richard Creehan said the three-year commitment that began in the 2011-12 school year will now run through the spring of 2015.
Alderson Broaddus' comprehensive fees include tuition, room and board and a general fee. When the freeze was first announced, the costs totaled $29,000 a year.
Creehan said the university is making "a genuine effort to help parents." He said A-B gives students a private-school experience at a public-school price.
