PSU trustees approve $4.42B budget, tuition hikes

UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Penn State’s Board of Trustees has approved a $4.42 billion budget and tuition increases averaging about 2.8 percent for all students.

The board met at Penn State’s Fayette campus in Uniontown.

In-state students at the main campus can expect the largest increase, 3.4 percent, which would raise tuition about $264 per semester for freshmen and sophomores. Out-of-state main campus students will pay $400 more per semester, although their increase is smaller by percentage. Satellite campus students will see smaller increases.
