State schools hiking tuition $200 a year



HARRISBURG — Tuition for students attending schools in the State System of Higher Education, including Slippery Rock University, will go up nearly $200 for the 2014-2015 school year.
The state system board of governors today approved the increase, according to a state system news release.
The base tuition rate for full-time, resident undergraduate students at any of the state system universities this fall will be $3,410 a semester, or $6,820 for the full academic year.
The current annual tuition is $6,622, which was up $194 from 2012-2013.
Nearly 90 percent of state system students are Pennsylvania residents and about 85 percent attend full-time.
The tuition increase essentially matches next year’s projected rate of inflation of about 3 percent.
With the tuition and other anticipated fee increases, the average total cost of attendance for a full-time, resident student at a state system university next year — including tuition, fees, room and board — will be about $18,500.
SRU has about 8,600 students.
