Tuition to jump 3 percent at Pa. universities

Posted: Updated:

Students at Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities will see a three percent tuition increase next year.

The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education's governing board on Tuesday approved a $198 tuition increase, or $99 a semester, for the 2014-15 academic year.

The base tuition rate for full-time, resident undergraduate students attending one of the state universities this fall will be $3,410 a semester, or $6,820 for the full academic year.

With other anticipated fee increases, the average total cost of attendance for a full-time, resident student next year - including combined tuition, fees, room and board - will be about $18,500.
