YSU to raise tuition

Published: Tue, July 14, 2009 @ 5:00 p.m.

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.

Since the state government took the tuition freeze off the table, it showed that state universities were going to get bigger cuts than they may have budgeted for.

If YSU's fiscal year starts on 7/1, I doubt they knew what the state was going to give them when the budget was finished. They could only make so many cuts in anticipation, before the numbers were in.

OSU isn't going to raise it all year, and OU isn't going to do it until at least Winter Quarter 2010 if they do at all this year. Blame your Trustees, not a political party.

Remember, the University has to fulfill its contractual agreements with the various Unions. I don't recall any salary reductions being agreed to.
