YSU to raise tuition

YOUNGSTOWN — The Youngstown State University Board of Trustees is expected to approve a 3.5 percent tuition increase for undergraduate students this year. The trustees had frozen tuition at the $6,721 a year mark when they passed a new budget in June, but a change in state funding in the biennial budget has altered that plan.

The trustees finance and facilities committee has recommended the 3.5 percent increase which would amount to $234 annually. The full board of trustees was expected to approve the plan later today.
