James Madison board approves undergrad tuition, fee hikes

WLNI-SHARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) _ James Madison University’s board has approved undergraduate tuition and fee increases for the 2015-2016 academic year. In-state students living on campus will pay $19,084 in tuition and fees, a 3.2 percent increase. Tuition and fees for out-of-state students living on campus will increase by 2.6 percent to $34,218. Graduate students’ tuition and fees will not change. The university’s board of visitors approved the increases on Friday. James Madison senior vice president Charles King told the board that the increases are necessary because of reduced state funding, higher employee insurance and retirement costs, salary increases and the expense of operating new facilities.
