ATHENS, W.Va. (AP) - Concord University students will pay higher tuition and fees for the upcoming academic year.

The university recently approved a 5 percent increase in tuition and fees. The cost of room and board will increase 4 percent. There also is a one-time $60 increase in a special equity fee.

In-state students will pay an additional $210 in tuition per semester. The cost of housing will increase $77 and dining will increase $74.

Board chairman Elliot Hicks says in a news release that state funding continues to shrink as money is redirected to other needs.
