Board approves tuition, fee increase
Published date: April 25, 2014
Virginia State University’s Board of Visitors has approved a tuition and mandatory fee increase of $218, or 2.8 percent, for in-state, undergraduate students for the 2014-15 academic year. Because of the modest size of the increase, VSU expects to maintain its standing as having one of the lowest tuition and fee structures among Virginia’s 15 public universities. Out-of-state tuition and fees will increase $646, or 3.8 percent.
“With an emphasis on offering our students an outstanding education at an affordable price, Virginia State University announces increases of 1.9 and 2.8 percent for in-state and out-of-state students respectively, for the 2014-2015 academic year,” said Vice President for Administration and CFO David Meadows. “This reflects VSU’s longstanding commitment to excellent stewardship and a continued understanding of the importance a college education provides in today’s society.”
When factoring in a $120 increase in room-and-board, the total 2014-2015 cost of a VSU education to an in-state, resident student, will be $18,130. This represents a 1.9 percent increase over last year.
