Penn St. Trustees To Vote On Tuition

Published July 9, 2010

DUBOIS, Pa. (AP) — Tuition is likely going up again for Penn State students.

University president Graham Spanier has presented the Board of Trustees with a proposal to increase tuition for freshmen and sophomores from Pennsylvania enrolled at the main University Park campus in State College by 5.9 percent. That represents an $800 increase per year to about $14,400.

Tuition would rise 4.5 percent, or by roughly $1,100, for out-of-state freshmen and sophomores to more than $26,000 a year.

Spanier says Penn State is trying to keep tuition as low as possible despite rising costs and state funding unchanged from last year.

Trustees were scheduled to vote in the afternoon on tuition and the university system's $4 billion proposed budget.
