HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) - Students at James Madison University will pay higher tuition and fees in the 2012-2013 academic year.
Increases approved Tuesday by the university's board of visitors will raise in-state tuition and fees by $360 to $8,808. Out-of-state students will pay $22,796, an increase of $1,058.
Tuition and fees for graduate students also will increase.
James Madison spokesman Don Egle tells The Daily News-Record that the increases are not as high as in the past two years due to an increase in state funding.
Senior vice president of finance Charles King says the increases are needed to help pay for higher operating, programming and auxiliary costs.
