PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - The Washington State University Board of Regents has approved the hiring of administrative staff, faculty, and operating staff for the new medical school in Spokane.
The regents on Friday also approved tuition rates for the next school year, including a legislatively authorized reduction of 10 percent.
Under the new rate, the annual cost of resident undergraduate tuition will drop from $10,356 a year to $9,324 in 2016-2017. Most other tuition rates will remain the same.
The board also elected Regent Lura J. Powell to succeed Regent T. Ryan Durkin as Chair of the Board of Regents. Regent Theodor Baseler was elected Vice Chair.
