Coppin State University offers free tuition to out-of-state elementary students as part of ‘Philadelphia Pathway’

April 1, 2022

Students at a Philadelphia elementary school received a surprise promise from the Baltimore university that shares its namesake: free tuition to Coppin State University — just so long as they graduate high school. Fanny Jackson Coppin Elementary School, previously called Andrew Jackson Elementary, celebrated its namesake Monday with an event revealing the building’s new signage. At the event, Coppin State University President Anthony Jenkins said students would have their full tuitions covered should they complete high school and attend the historically Black university.
