Additional Information

Kettering University was one of the country’s first private universities to commit to a fixed-rate tuition guarantee.  Fixed-rate tuition means you’ll pay the same for your last senior seminar as you do for your first freshman lecture. That’s just the first in a substantial list of “smart money” considerations that make Kettering an exceptional value.
