Annual Tuition Update

January 26, 2021


A Message from President James Danko

Dear Students,

Welcome back to campus! I hope that you enjoyed a healthy and safe Winter Break with family and friends, and that you are rejuvenated and ready to start the semester. I wish you health, peace, happiness, and unforgettable memories as you embark on new adventures in 2021.

I know that 2020 was difficult for many of you. Though the year has come to an end, the difficulties we faced—the pandemic, racial injustice, political division, and economic hardship to name a few—remain for many. I want you to know that my heart goes out to all who are confronting personal challenges. Together, thanks to the power of the Butler community, we will persevere.

I am pleased to announce today that the Butler University Board of Trustees has approved a tuition freeze for all current and incoming students for the 2021–2022 academic year. It is our heartfelt hope that this action will provide some stability to you and your families during this very uncertain period.

Thanks to the efforts and dedication of our faculty and staff, the University was able to take appropriate action to mitigate the financial risks associated with the coronavirus and prioritize the well-being of our entire community. This has supported our ability to maintain tuition at the current amount. Of course, the pandemic isn’t over and we must remain vigilant. But we are confident that the steps we have taken will allow us to thrive in both the short and long term.

Successfully navigating the challenges that remain with us this semester is critical to our future. I respectfully ask that you each do your part to maintain a safe campus environment. Please wear your mask, socially distance, avoid large gatherings, submit your daily health screenings, and participate in our COVID-19 testing programs.

I look forward to seeing you around campus and wish you well this semester.


James M. Danko

President, Butler Univerity
