CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - University of Virginia students will be paying more for tuition next year.

Local media report UVA’s Board of Visitors approved the increase Thursday. In-state students will pay 2.2 percent more, and out-of-state students will pay 3.5 percent more.

The university said in a statement that the increase is needed to deal with a state budget cut and required employee pay raises.

TV station WVIR reports a group of students protested outside the building where the Board of Visitors was meeting.
