West Virginia University students will pay 5 percent more in tuition and fees this fall under a package of increases the Board of Governors approved Thursday in Charleston.

The tuition increases amount to $145 more per semester for resident undergraduates and $449 more for nonresidents on the main campus in Morgantown. That raises the total cost from $2,837 to $3,045 per semester for residents, and from $8,922 to $9,434 for nonresidents.

The increases are slightly smaller at Potomac State College in Keyser and the WVU Institute of Technology in Montgomery.

Both resident and nonresident undergraduates at Potomac State will pay $72 more per semester. At WVU Tech, residents will pay $107 more per semester, while nonresidents will pay $268 more.
