Hybrid Model & New Programs

The hybrid model entails fee-based programs that are academically exciting and that generate new net revenues that can subsidize the scholarships of our three core undergraduate programs. On April 24, 2012, President Bharucha issued a letter updating the community on the proposed hybrid framework and a decision to preserve full-tuition scholarships for the core undergraduate programs for the incoming classes of fall 2012 and fall 2013. Members of the Revenue Task Force have recommended development of a hybrid model.
The idea was to preserve full-tuition scholarships, if possible, at the undergraduate level, while adding revenue-generating non-baccalaureate programs, including professional master’s and certificate programs, online programs, and other fee-based programs.
The administration is open to considering online learning programs that would meet Cooper’s high standards of excellence.
