Virginia Commonwealth University is contemplating a 3% hike in tuition and fees next year.
The Board of Visitors yesterday (3/31) considered a $538 million dollar instructional budget and ways to pay for it.
Options would increase tuition and mandatory fees by either $344 or $374 dollars for in-state students.
The money would go to increased faculty compension and student financial aid, with deferred maintenance at the higher rate. Under the proposals in-state students would pay up to $12,772.
