HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - The Marshall University Board of Governors has approved increases for tuition and fees and on-campus living starting next fall.
Undergraduate tuition and fees will increase $141 per semester for in-state students, $225 for out-of-state students and $285 for students from 15 neighboring counties in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky.
A $145 increase in room and board rates also was approved.
Those attending Marshall's medical school will see their tuition and fees increase $302 per semester for in-state students and $702 for out-of-state students.
Marshall President Stephen J. Kopp said Tuesday that while the board faces the challenge of keeping tuition affordable every year, the university continues to provide an exceptional value to students.
