James Madison University is increasing its in-state undergraduate tuition and mandatory fees by 6.7 percent for the upcoming school year.
Tuition and fees for Virginia residents living on campus will be $7,860 annually, up from $7,364, in a measure approved Friday by the Board of Visitors. The board noted it must make up for cuts in state funding.
The total cost for a typical in-state undergraduate - including tuition, fees, room and board - will be $15,560, up 3.3 percent from 2009-10.
Annual tuition and fees for out-of-state undergraduates will be $20,624 in 2010-11, up about 5.7 percent. Including room and board, their total cost will be $28,324.
