PASSHE Approves Tuition Hike for PA State Universities
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Students and their families will pay about 3 percent more for tuition and technology fees at Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities.
The board of governors of the State System of Higher Education met by teleconference Monday afternoon. They voted nearly unanimously on 2012-13 tuition rates and technology fees.
For in-state undergraduates, a 3 percent increase in tuition and technology fees will mean an extra $198. Out-of-state undergraduates pay anywhere from one-and-a-half to two times as much, and they'll see a 3 percent increase, as well.
Nearly 120,000 students are enrolled in the state universities at Bloomsburg, California, Cheyney, Clarion, East Stroudsburg, Edinboro, Indiana, Kutztown, Lock Haven, Mansfield, Millersville, Shippensburg, Slippery Rock and West Chester.
