TUITION TRANSITION: Jenna Yang '09 attends the Tuition Transition celebration March 26 in the the Suzanne Lemberg Usdan University Center. After this date, tuition grants from alumni, parents and friends of Wesleyan begin supporting every student's education for the remainder of the semester. The event was sponsored by University Relations.

Sandy Tello '06, assistant director of regional programs and networks, explains how the transition works to Erik Gonzalez '09. Wesleyan's annual cost per student is $66,000 for tuition, room and board. Students are responsible for $47,000 of this amount, and tuition grants from alumni, parents and friends through the Wesleyan Fund and endowment pick up the additional $19,000 per student every year.
