WESTON — WVU tuition and fees will increase for all students.
The WVU Board of Governors approved a tuition hike and the university’s Fiscal Year 2015 budget during its meeting Thursday, June 5. The BOG met at Jackson’s Mill and started by hearing a presentation about WVU Extension efforts.
The tuition plan includes an 8 percent increase for in-state students and 4 percent increase for non-residents.
That makes tuition and fees $6,968 per year for in-state students and $20,424 per year for out-of-state students.
WVU has had a tuition hike each year since 2010.
Increases of 6 and 4 percent were planned and included in a presentation last year when the Fiscal Year 2014 budget was finalized.
The Fiscal Year 2015 budget — which starts on July 1 — also calls for a small, state-mandated raise for employees.
