4 Tuition & Fees– BOG Guidance 4 Undergraduate Tuition: Tuition increases for undergraduate resident students limited to 6.5% of current tuition. Campuses with significant unfunded needs may submit proposal for Tuition increases above 6.5%---must fully document significant need and provide detailed plan, and tuition is the only viable funding. o At least 25% of new tuition revenues must support need- based financial aid. Campuses whose Tuition & General Fee rates differ significantly from those charged by similar UNC institutions or public peer institutions may consider one-time adjustments to tuition/fees to “catch up”—must be fully justified and consideration should be given to phasing in the increase over a multi-year period to reduce impact on students. Combined Tuition, General Fees, and Debt Service Fees must continue to remain in the bottom quarter of WSSU’s public peers.

5 Tuition & Fees– BOG Guidance (cont) 5 Non-resident Tuition: Tuition for non-resident students at all levels …higher than the rates charged residents of NC and comparable to the rates charged nonresident students by comparable public institutions. Graduate Tuition: Although tuition ceilings have not been established for graduate schools, campuses encouraged to review all revenue sources before recommending increases higher than the undergraduate rate increase. General Fees (Athletics, Student Activities, Student Health, and Ed Tech) increases must not exceed 6.5% overall. Special Fees, Those that apply to students in particular programs such as nursing, are permitted this year. Miscellaneous Service Charges, such as transcripts, ID replacements, and diplomas, are also permitted.
