Lebanon's Notre Dame University has decided to freeze tuition fees until 2020, according to an official statement released Tuesday, in what the institution is calling a "historic decision" to help students in light of economic struggles across the country.The decision effectively means tuition – currently set at a minimum of LL530,000 ($351) per credit hour for undergraduate students, according to NDU's website – will not increase until at least 2020 . The freeze comes in contrast to tuition hikes in recent years at other Lebanese universities, including an increase in 2013 at the country's top-ranked American University of Beirut, which sparked student protests.
