UNC system board doesn't plan to raise in-state tuitions

Posted: Updated:

The Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina system began two days of meetings Thursday with President Tom Ross proposing no in-state tuition hikes for 2014-15.

Non-resident tuition will still go up for undergraduates.

"We've worked hard to become more efficient. We've reduced the cost per degree when you adjust for inflation by 17 percent while we're producing 17 percent more degrees," UNC System President Tom Ross said Thursday.

For the  2014-15 academic year, the currently enacted state budget requires non-resident tuition increases of:

  • 12.3 percent for UNC-Chapel Hill, North Carolina A&T, School of the Arts, UNC-Wilmington
  • 6 percent increases for N.C. Central, Appalachian State, East Carolina, Elizabeth City State, Fayetteville State, UNC-Asheville, UNC-Greensboro, UNC-Pembroke, Western Carolina and Winston-Salem State.
  • No increases at N.C. State and UNC-Charlotte.

Ross is proposing no rate increases for in-state students for 2014-15.

N.C. State is proposing a 9.2 percent increase for non-resident undergraduates for 2014-15.

The UNC system is also proposing general fees overall rise 4.2 percent for 2014-15, as opposed to 5.3 percent for 2013-14.

The biggest increase is the 7.4 percent hike N.C. State is proposing in increased general fees, which would rise $108.27 to $1,570.92. That still puts NCSU's fees below every school in the system but UNC (which would be a proposed $1,524.99).

The Board of Governors is expected to vote on tuition and fees next month.

The board is working on a state funding request that is about $94 million more than this year.
