For the first time in more than 40 years Mount Holyoke College officials have decided not to raise the cost of tuition.
The board of trustees made the decision this past weekend not to raise tuition for the 2012-2013 academic year.
More than 70 percent of students at the college already get financial aid.
But college officials tell CBS 3 they're trying to make it easier on student's bank accounts.
Next year, the cost of tuition will remain at $41,000 a year.
The cost of room and board will also not rise.
