The West Virginia University Board of Governors approved tuition and fee schedules for the WVU system, including West Virginia University Institute of Technology, on Thursday, June 6.
Students attending WVU Tech will not pay more in academic program fees or on-campus housing for the 2014-2015 academic year. However, tuition will increase by four percent, an increase of $120 for in-state students and $288 for out-of-state students per semester.
“WVU Tech remains a wise and affordable investment. Our students receive high quality instruction with individualized attention on a close-knit campus from faculty and staff who genuinely care about student success,” shared Campus President Carolyn Long.
The value of a WVU Tech degree is nationally recognized. The institution received high marks on Payscale’s 2014 College Return on Investment Report, ranking in the top ten percent of public schools in the nation for students paying in-state tuition and highest overall return on investment in West Virginia.
Meal plan rates will also increase modestly by three percent, or approximately $50 per semester, as the new “Tech Spot” café opens in the fall to bring students additional dining options.
