Even though it will cost more than last year, the increase matches the one from last fall which was the smallest since 1994. University reps say tuition will go along with the cost-of-living and national inflation.
The university's Board of Trustees approved the hike Thursday. They also approved student fees which will go up $68/year, plus housing rates which will go up about $200/year.
Despite the extra money, some prospective students say cost isn't the main thing they're looking for in a school. Even if rates go up next year, this newest class of freshmen won't have to worry. Tuition is locked in for four years.
