Average Virginia In-State Tuition on the Rise

August 2, 2010

Federal stimulus funds are helping to hold tuition and fee increases for in-state students at Virginia's public colleges and universities to 10.6 percent for the upcoming school year.

The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia released a report Monday showing that the average annual in-state tuition and fee increase at Virginia's 15 public four-year schools is $830. In-state students at community colleges will see their tuition and fees rise by 18.1 percent, or $504.

The state's public higher-education institutions are receiving $198 million in stimulus funding for this fiscal year to offset state funding cuts and to mitigate tuition increases. The funds will dry up in September 2011.
