FARMVILLE, Va. (AP) - Longwood University says a reduction in mandatory student fees will largely offset a tuition increase for the 2014-2015 academic year.

Longwood's Board of Visitors on Saturday approved a 7.4 percent increase in undergraduate tuition. The board also cut mandatory fees by 4.9 percent.

In-state undergraduates will pay $11,580 in tuition and mandatory fees, based on a full 30-credit course load. Out-of-state undergraduates will pay a total $25,350.

The university said Sunday that many students also will pay lower auxiliary fees under a new, simplified fee structure.

Overall, Longwood says undergraduate tuition and fees will increase by about 2 percent. The university says that's the smallest increase in 14 years and the smallest at any public four-year institution in Virginia since 2001.
