WVU Board approves $1.07 billion budget, 5 percent increase in tuition for FY18

The WVU Board of Governors on Thursday (June 29) unanimously approved a $1.07 billion budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, including an average 5 percent tuition increase. 

While the budget adopted by the Legislature last week reflected a 6.6 percent, or $8.7 million, reduction in state support, the Board was able to keep to its previous plan for tuition increases. The reduction is about $3 million more than had been anticipated; the Legislature has reduced state support to WVU by more than $38 million in the last four years. 

Resident tuition will increase $384 an academic year, from $7,992 to $8,376; non-resident tuition goes up $1,128 from $22,488 to $23,616.
