Maryland tuition rises for first time in four years
Regents of the University System of Maryland this morning approved a tuition hike for the first time in four years, signaling the end of the state's semi-historic freeze.
Tuition will rise 3 percent in the state university system, the first increase since 2005.
In-state tuition and fees at the University of Maryland rise from $8,053 to $8,416 -- actually a 4.5 percent increase, when fees are factored in. They are apparently rising at a faster clip.
Out-of-state tuition and fees at U-Md., not bound by the freeze, go from $23,990 to $24,831, an increase of 3.5 percent.
Bowie State in-state tuition and fees go from $6,040 to $6,153, a bump of 1.9 percent; fees there are rising more slowly. Towson tuition and fees go from $7,418 to $7,656, a 3.2-percent bump.
At the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, resident tuition and fees go from $8,872 to $9,171, a 3.4-percent increase.
