Virginia State University’s Board of Visitors has approved a tuition and mandatory fee increase of $364, or 4.9 percent, for in-state, undergraduate students for the 2013-14 academic year.  Because of the modest size of the increase, VSU expects to maintain its standing as having one of the lowest tuition and fee structures among Virginia’s 15 public universities. Out-of-state tuition and fees will increase $804, also 4.9 percent.

“This year’s tuition and fee increase represents a clear message to our students that VSU recognized and met the challenge of ensuring that any necessary increase was reasonable and the cost of a VSU education remains affordable,” said Vice President for Finance and Administration David Meadows.

When factoring in a $328 increase in room-and-board, the total 2013-2014 cost of a VSU education to an in-state, resident student, will be $17,792. This represents a total 4 percent increase over last year.  

“We are grateful to the General Assembly for investing more heavily in higher education in its last two sessions,” Meadows said. “The Assembly providing additional funding allowed VSU to keep this year’s increase in tuition and fees to an amount concurrent to the rise in our operating expenses, in concert with Governor McDonnell’s recommendations with regard to tuition and fees.”
