Penn State to Enact Lower Tuition Plan
Penn State announced today that they plan to enact the lower of the two tuition scenarios approved by the Board of Trustees last week. Penn State spokesperson Lisa Powers said that support from Pennsylvania’s congressional representatives and state legislators influenced the University’s decision. Out-of-state students will see a tuition increase of 3.7% while in-state students will see a 4.5% increase.
The decision comes following an announcement from the Department of Education stating that Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell will have to resubmit his application for federal stimulus money to include appropriations for Pennsylvania’s four state-related institutions.
