WVU-P Tuition Hike

By  | 

It's going to cost students at West Virginia University at Parkersburg more to go to school next fall.

Tuition will increase by 4.7% for the Fall 2008 semester.

That comes out to about $87 more per semester for in-state community college students and $120 more for West Virginia residents pursuing a bachelors degree.

Officials say the increase is partly because new faculty and services are being added.

They say costs have also gone up.

WVU-P's tuition still remains the lowest in the state for community college and baccalaureate programs.
