ETTRICK, Va. (AP) - Tuition and fees are increasing at Virginia State University.

Full-time in-state undergraduate students will pay an additional $450 per year. Full-time out-of-state undergraduates will pay an additional $400.

Also, on-campus housing for both in-state and out-of-state students will increase by $800.

The Progress-Index reports that the increases recently approved by the school's Board of Visitors are expected to generate an additional $5.4 million revenue. The money will be used to help pay for improvements included in the school's state-mandated academic and financial plan.

University officials say state funding has dropped by more than $4.6 million in recent years.
