LINCOLN, Ill. (AP) - While colleges across the country talk about ways to limit tuition increases one central Illinois institution has frozen student cost for a second straight year. And that’s after a reduction two years ago.

Lincoln College, located in the central town of Lincoln, announced this week it will hold annual tuition for the 2014-15 academic year at $16,500. According to The Pantagraph in Bloomington (https://bit.ly/1gWoLo0 ), that’s the same rate students at the small private school are paying this year.

Trustees cut tuition two years ago from $23,000 a year.

Rick Samuels is Lincoln’s vice president for enrollment management and student services. He says the tuition freeze seems to helping the school retain students.

Two other area schools, Eureka College and Lincoln Christian University, recently announced their own tuition freezes.
