Md. University Tuition Hikes Approved

The 2.4 percent increase over this year's tuition and fees is expected to boost revenue by $35.7 million.

Students at Maryland's state universities will be paying a little more next school year.

The University System of Maryland's Board of Regents approved tuition and fee hikes at a meeting in Baltimore Wednesday. The 2.4 percent increase over this year's tuition and fees is expected to boost revenue by $35.7 million.

Officials say tuition for Maryland residents won't increase by more than 3 percent at most schools, but in-state students' tuition will increase by 6 percent at Salisbury University. Students from other states will pay up to 4.4 percent more.

With fee increases, Maryland residents could pay a few hundred dollars more and residents of other states will pay several hundred dollars to about $1,000 more next year depending on the school.
