RICHMOND, Va. - Virginia Commonwealth University students will pay more for tuition and mandatory fees starting in the fall.
Returning students will continue to pay under a block pricing structure under the plan approved Friday by the Board of Visitors. New students will pay on a per-credit hour basis, with credits at 15 hours or more reduced to half price.
The increases are 4.19 percent for in-state undergraduate students and 3.98 percent for out-of-state undergraduates. The typical bill for returning students will be $10,299 for Virginians and $24,863 for out-of-state students.
For new students taking 30 credit hours per year, the cost will be $12,002 for Virginians and $24,473 for out-of-state residents.
Costs will be higher for students living in student housing with a meal plan.
