Marhall University Considers Tuition Hike

Marshall students may be paying more soon. Undergraduate students would pay higher tuition and fees under proposals being considered by the school's Board of Governors, and a vote could come today. If the increases are approved, The Herald-Dispatch reports that in-state undergraduate students would pay an additional $155 per semester. Out-of-state students would pay an additional $290. Tuition and fees for metro students would increase by $325. President Stephen Kopp told the Faculty Senate last week that Marshall has lost $11 million in state appropriations during the past two years of statewide budget cuts.
