Youngkin asks colleges to flatten tuition
Ten Commonwealth colleges have answered Governor Glenn Youngkin’s request to flatten tuition costs this fall.
This effort attempts to help students, parents, and families impacted by inflation.
So far, Virginia Commonwealth University, James Madison University and a few others have frozen their rates.
Some schools like Virginia Tech and the College of William and Mary were not planning a tuition increase this fall.
The University of Virginia is the lone institution that refused the request citing a potential loss of $7.5 million to which Youngkin pointed out the school’s $2 billion budget.
Some schools are already planning to raise fees and cost of room and board next year.
Another plan includes a one time scholarship for in-state students to cover increases for next year while out-of-state and graduate students will pay an increased rate.
