Temple University announced yesterday that it will stay with the 2.9 percent tuition increase trustees approved in April. But the university said it might have to reexamine its tuition if the state adopts a budget that contains a proposed $21 million cut in funding for Temple. Temple's tuition increase is smaller than the hikes of between 3.7 and 4.5 percent announced yesterday by Pennsylvania State University, the University of Pittsburgh, and the 14 state-system universities, including West Chester and Cheyney.

The state auditor general has announced that the Lower Moreland School District should calculate tuition for Bryn Athyn students according to state Department of Education guidelines, not a longstanding oral agreement between the two districts. Auditor General Don Bailey recommended that the district abandon an oral agreement, in place since 1976, with Bryn Athyn on how the tuition was calculated. The difference in the two methods of calculation resulted in an overpayment by Bryn Athyn to Lower Moreland of $10,362 over the 1984-85 and 1985-86 school years, Bailey said a statement issued Aug. 15. Bailey's audit report also said Bryn Athyn would have to pay the tuition monthly rather than semi-annually.

Temple University's board of trustees voted Thursday morning to hold the line on tuition for 2012-13, its decision coming just days after state lawmakers proposed restoring a 30 percent budget cut to Temple and two other state-related colleges. It's the first time since 1995 that the university has not raised tuition, said spokesman Ray Betzner. The zero increase in tuition covers both in-state and out-of-state students. For in-state students, tuition will remain $13,006 and for out-of-state students, $22,832.

Students at Rowan University likely will be paying several hundred dollars more to attend classes this fall. According to Rowan University president Herman James, a 14 percent increase in tuition, which was approved unanimously at a board of trustees meeting last night, is mostly due to a five-year general improvement plan at the institution. The rest is the result of state funding cuts. At the time the Rowan board was meeting, Whitman administration officials were announcing that an agreement had been reach to provide more money for higher education in the proposed budget.

Edgewater Park School officials are upset at the high cost of educating township students at Burlington City High School, but not upset enough to demand an independent audit of the Burlington board's budget. "We don't feel that an audit is necessary at this point," said Walter J. Dold, superintendent of Edgewater Park schools. The concern of the Edgewater Park officials and residents stems from a $700 tuition increase for the township students who attend Burlington High. During the school board meeting Monday, residents and officials asked Dold if an outside audit of Burlington City's books could be conducted.

The Rowan College board of trustees yesterday voted to raise tuition by at least 5 percent and perhaps as much as 13 percent for the 1993-94 school year. The exact amount of the increase depends on how much money Rowan receives from the State Tuition Stabilization Incentive Program. Under the worst scenario, tuition could increase as much as 13 percent. The trustees passed four resolutions, anticipating different levels of state subsidy. If Rowan gets the $1,077,000 that it requested, tuition will rise 5 percent.

The Glassboro State College board of trustees has introduced a $53.3 million 1987-88 budget that proposes a $150 tuition increase per student. The increase marks the first time that the trustees have been able to raise tuition on their own, thanks to a state autonomy law that went into effect this year. At a Saturday work session, the board of trustees revealed the budget, which proposes a rise in tuition of $5 per credit hour for undergraduate students and $6 per credit hour for graduate students.

With the school election only six days away, Kingsway school board members are in the middle of a dispute that has placed their $9 million budget in limbo and left residents guessing what their property taxes will be next year. Before school administrators can determine an exact property tax rate for the April 19 election, they must resolve a dispute among Kingsway school board members regarding how much tuition should be charged to Logan Township for the 233 Logan students expected to attend Kingsway next year.

A drop in enrollment at high schools in the Philadelphia Archdiocese is being blamed in part for a $60 tuition increase in the upcoming school year. The archdiocese announced parents will pay $1,255 per student in the school year beginning in September. Families with more than one student enrolled will pay a maximum of $2,510, or $120 more than this year. The fee which parishes pay for each student also will be increased, from $240 to $300. Parents of non-Catholic students in archdiocesan high schools must pay that fee themselves.

For some students, the difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition is the difference between attending college and giving up the dream of higher education. A bill posted for a hearing in the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee today aims to close that gap for illegal immigrants who meet certain criteria. Proposals to allow such students to pay the lower in-state tuition have been floating around the Legislature since at least 2002. Advocates hope to push the bill through the Legislature before the end of the session, because while Gov. Corzine supports it, Gov.-elect Christopher J. Christie opposes it. Under the bill, illegal immigrants could qualify for in-state tuition if they attended a New Jersey high school for at least three years, graduated or received the equivalent of a high school diploma from a New Jersey high school, and submitted an affidavit to the college or university stating they had applied to legalize their immigration status.
