No Tuition Hike Next Year for 14 State-Owned Universities

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania students who attend one of the 14 state-owned universities won’t see higher tuition next year, the first such freeze in more than 20 years. The State System of Higher Education’s board on Wednesday voted for to keep in-state tuition flat at about $7,700. The system’s last tuition freeze was for the 1998-99 school year, when the cost for in-state students was less than half what it is today.
