HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — Tuition at Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities is going up by 3.5 percent.
The board of the State System of Higher Education voted Thursday for the higher rate despite Gov. Tom Wolf's request that it remain level.
Pennlive.com reports (http://bit.ly/1gqiq9Q) that the decision increases in-state undergraduate tuition by $240 to $7,060 a year. There's also a policy that means a technology fee will go up by $14 to $436 a year.
