UPDATE: CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) _ The cost to attend the University of Virginia is going up. During meetings that ended Wednesday, the university’s Board of Visitors
approved a series of tuition increases that raise the total cost of attending the Charlottesville school. One measure will increase total costs by 3.6 percent, or about $470, to $13,468 for in-state undergraduate students and by 3.7 percent, or about $1,580, to $43,764 for out-of-state undergraduates. Those increases are in addition to a plan passed Tuesday that raises tuition for incoming students. Under the increases, incoming first-year in-state undergraduate students will see tuition and fees rise about 11 percent, or $1,470, next year. The Daily Progress reports that the hikes aim to cover projected shortfalls from state mandates, faculty raises, additional health staff and public safety.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) _ Students would pay more to attend the University of Virginia if a proposed tuition increase is approved. The proposal includes a 3.6 percent increase for in-state undergraduate students and a 3.7 percent hike for out-of-state undergraduates. Tuition for students in the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences would rise by about 2.5 percent. Tuition increases for students in the medicine, law and graduate business schools would range from 2 percent to 6 percent. U.Va. chief operating officer Patrick Hogan tells The Daily Progress that the school faces a projected $30 million net increase in costs next year. The Board of Visitors is expected to vote on the proposal this week.
