Old Dominion University is deferring a decision on tuition for the 2012-13 academic year until Virginia's state budget is done.
Under the normal timeline, next year's tuition and fees would have been set at Wednesday's meeting of ODU's governing Board of Visitors.
"There are just too many unknowns for us to make that decision now," Robert Fenning, ODU's vice president for administration and finance, told the board.
Because ODU is a state institution, its budget is driven to a large degree by decisions made in Richmond. Due to a partisan deadlock in the state Senate, the General Assembly failed to pass a 2012-14 state budget during its regular session that ended last month, and deliberations are ongoing.
