CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson University's board of trustees is raising undergraduate tuition by three percent as it tries to pay for more faculty, technology and facilities.
The university's leaders on Monday approved a tuition increase that amounts to $190 per semester for in-state students and $444 for out-of-state students. The school last year approved a 3% increase for in-state students and a 4% increase for out-of-state students.
The board also approved an average 3% increase in campus housing and meal plans, which amounts to an average of $68 per semester for housing and $46 per semester for meal plans. Revenues will be used to cover inflation and planned renovations and capital improvements.Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
