11 - 22 - 2013 PSU could hike tuition rates for some students
[CDT] - Penn State is exploring changes to its tuition structure that would result in some students in certain colleges on campus paying higher rates to get an education here. Juniors and seniors in the colleges of Nursing, Engineering, Science, Earth and Mineral Sciences, Business, and Information Science and Technology already pay more than their peers at Penn State. Under some recommendations unveiled yesterday during a board of trustees committee meeting, the university is considering increasing the tuition cost of programs in those colleges as well as expanding that increased tuition level to freshmen and sophomores.
