SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Students at Shepherd University will be paying 5 percent more for tuition starting next fall.

The university Board of Governors approved the increase last week.

Undergraduate in-state students will pay $170 more for tuition to $3,585 per semester. Out-of-state undergraduates would pay $427 more for tuition to $8,741 per semester.

Tuition would increase by $20 per credit for in-state graduate students to $435 per credit, and $30 for out-of-state graduate students to $622 per credit.

Room rates will increase an average of 1.89 percent, depending on the type of housing, and board rates will increase an average 2.08 percent across current meal plans.

The university says the state implemented a 4 percent reduction in appropriations on Jan. 1, and the governor’s proposed budget for fiscal 2017 carries that reduction forward.
