VCU tuition, fees to rise 24 percent
In-state undergraduates at Virginia Commonwealth University will see 2010-11 tuition and fees rise by 24 percent.
VCU's Board of Visitors on Thursday set in-state tuition and mandatory fees at $8,817, up $1,700 from the current academic year. School officials say VCU will boost financial aid for students with the most need by using federal stimulus funds available for 2010-11.
Undergraduate tuition and fees for out-of-state students will increase $1,200, or 5.7 percent, to $21,949. The average annual cost for university housing and meal plans will increase $191, or 2.3 percent, to $8,526.
Over the next two years, VCU faces a $40 million budget gap caused primarily by state funding cuts and the loss of federal stimulus dollars
