The University of Virginia Board of Visitors on Wednesday approved undergraduate tuition rates for the 2014-15 academic year.
Tuition and all mandatory fees for first-year undergraduate Virginia residents entering in August will increase by 4.3 percent, while the rate for out-of-state students is increasing by 5.9 percent.
The total cost of attendance for a first-year Virginia resident – which includes tuition and fees, room and board, and estimated expenses for books and travel expenditures – will increase by $949 to $27,417.
Revenue from the new rates will be used for compensating faculty and staff, as well as funding priorities of the Cornerstone Plan.
