Chapel Hill, N.C. — Students of at least three state universities will likely pay more for their education after trustees this week approved tuition increases set to begin next fall.
The Board of Trustees at North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Pembroke both approved hikes on Friday.
N.C. State undergraduates paying in-state tuition will likely pay 5.1 percent, or $290, more next year, while in-state tuition for graduate students will go up 4.2 percent, or about $290.
Undergraduates at UNC-Pembroke will pay 6.6 percent more, or $199, and $88 more in fees.
On Thursday, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Board of Trustees approved a 10.3 percent increase, or $600, for in-state tuition for undergraduates and a 6.1 percent, or $1,630, increase for in-state graduates. Also approved was a 2.5 percent increase in fees – $46.79 for undergraduates and $46.61 for graduates.
The proposed campus tuition and fee increases still require approval from the University of North Carolina system and the General Assembly.
