The increases were expected as the university deals with a more than $5.1 million decrease in state appropriations for the upcoming fiscal year.

In-state undergraduate students will pay an additional $140, or 4.82 percent, per semester under the plan.

That would bring the total cost of tuition to $2,355. Under the plan in-state graduate residents would pay $268 more per semester.

Non-resident students would receive increases of 3.7 percent for undergraduate students and 3.52 percent for graduate students.

The university can increase tuition up to 5 percent for resident students without seeking approval from the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission.
