Ripon College Offers Free Tuition To Current Students

2020 proved to be a challenging year for many, not the least of which were students and staff at so many levels. One local institution of higher learning is stepping up to offer an option to students. Ripon College announced on Tuesday they have put the “Plus Semester(s) Program” in place. In a statement released Tuesday, Ripon College said the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic greatly affected students’ ability to graduate in four years. The college said the four year program takes full advantage of the Ripon College experience, including in-person learning, internships, research opportunities, events, programs and everything that goes with on-campus living. Those students enrolled in the fall 2020 and spring 2021 semesters will have their tuition waived for their ninth semester or fifth year. You can find out more about the program at
