Percentage increases in undergraduate tuition and mandatory fees at Virginia Tech and Radford University were higher than the average for public colleges and universities this year, a state report has found.

The average increase for in-state undergraduate tuition and fees across the commonwealth for the 2011-12 school year was 7.9 percent, according to a report issued by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia.
