Tuition to Increase at State Owned Universities

Due to budget cuts, State-Owned Universities will be raising tuition.

The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education voted on Thurdsay to increase tuition for Pennsylvania State-Owner Universities by 3.5%.

The Board of Governors voted in April to freeze the rate.  The vote yesterday reversed that decision and will make up for budget cuts.

The vote will increase tuition by $240 per year and will start in the fall.  Annual tuition will now be $7,060.
