HARRISBURG - Students at Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities will see an average tuition increase of nearly 3 percent in the 2007-08 school year under rates approved by the schools' governing board yesterday.
The board's finance committee recommended increasing tuition at the State System of Higher Education by 2.75 percent. Under the new rate, full-time undergraduate students who are Pennsylvania residents would pay $5,177 for the year, an increase of $139.
Tuition for out-of-state students varies, depending on factors such as the university and their major. It will range from $7,766 to $12,944 a year for undergraduates in 2007-08. The board also approved increasing the annual technology fee to $175 for resident students and $264 for nonresidents.
