MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) – West Virginia University plans to increase in-state tuition at its Morgantown campus under $ 120.
The Herald-Dispatch reports that the Board of Governors of the school voted on Friday to approve the teaching approval for the next academic year.
The student representative on the board was the only person who voted no. The university did not disclose the proposed increase in tuition prior to voting.
The school says that the tuition and room and board rates increases about $ 520 in total for in-state students. In addition, in-state tuition for nursing students will be around $ 740 each year and nursing students outside the state will increase by around $ 6,000.
John Bolt, Senior Executive Director of WVU, says that this increase in tuition has been the lowest seen by the school over the last 20 years.
