Pitt trustees vote to raise tuition 3.25 percent

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The University of Pittsburgh board of trustees has voted to raise tuition 3.25 percent for students attending its main campus, and 2 percent for students at three of its satellite campuses.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (http://bit.ly/13j8hBl ) reports Wednesday’s vote means in-state students at the main campus school of arts and sciences will pay $15,985 this year, an increase of $255. Out-of-state students at the same school will pay $413 more, or $25,420 next year.

Satellite campuses in Bradford, Johnstown and Greensburg will see the 2-percent increase, with tuition at Pitt-Titusville remaining the same.

Medical school tuition will rise 5 percent.

The trustees say the overall increase is the smallest at the state-related university since 1975.
