YSU trustees OK 3.5% tuition hike



Published: Fri, June 17, 2011 @ 9:19 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Full-time undergraduate students at Youngstown State University will pay $126 more per semester this fall after trustees approved a 3.5 percent tuition increase.

The vote came at a trustees meeting Friday, increasing from $3,600 to $3,726 the amount paid per semester by Ohio residents.

University officials cited the reduction in state funding as the reason the increase is needed. YSU expects a $9.5 million deficit for fiscal year 2012. The tuition increase will generate about $3.2 million.

For full-time undergraduate students living in the 10-county region considered the Western Pennsylvania Advantage area, tuition will go up $131 per semester, from $3,700 to $3,831.

Full-time students living in the 15-county regional service area in Pennsylvania, New York and West Virginia will see a $193 per-semester increase, and full-time, out-of-state students outside of that region will pay $268 more per semester.

Graduate students also will have to dig deeper into their pockets to pay tuition.

Full-time, in-state graduates will pay $167 more per semester, from $4,788 to $4,956. Full-time, out-of-state tuition for graduate students will increase $172 per semester, from $4,888 to $5,060.
