University of Charleston undergrad tuition to increase by $3,000; financial aid also to rise


CHARLESTON, West Virginia — University of Charleston President Ed Welch says a tuition increase will be offset by more financial aid.

Undergraduate tuition at the private university will increase by $3,000 to $28,900 a year.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (http://bit.ly/20OpKii ) reports that Welch told students at a Wednesday meeting that the university will increase financial aid by $2,000.

Welch said graduate, online students and those enrolled at the university's campuses in Beckley and Martinsburg won't be affected by the tuition increase.

He also said fees for room and board won't change.

The university's Board of Trustees approved the increase in October. Welch said the move was prompted by several programs and additions, along with new federal regulations for employee compensation.
