HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) – Marshall University is simplifying its tuition and fee structure.

The university Board of Governors on announced the move Wednesday.

Chief Financial Officer Mary Ellen Heuton says Marshall will eliminate all off-campus and regional campus fees and most fees for courses and labs. Instead, fees will be based on their specific degree programs.

Heuton says the previous structure had numerous variables that determined how much a student paid to attend school.

Marshall says the structure will allow prospective students to compare the cost of a degree program with that of other higher education institutions.

The board is expected to consider tuition and fee amounts later.

More than 13,000 students were enrolled at Marshall last fall.
