HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - The Marshall University board of governors has approved a $119.3 million operating budget for the coming school year that increases tuition and fees about 9 percent.

That follows the Legislature’s adoption of a state budget that cuts Marshall’s funding almost 7 percent.

According to the university, full-time, resident undergraduates will pay $322 more per semester, while those living in the designated metro region counties of Kentucky and Ohio will pay $440 more.

Non-resident students will pay $737 more.

For graduate students, tuition for residents will go up $334 per semester, for metro residents $469 and for non-residents $806.

University officials say their budget projects $42.7 million from the state and almost $62 million from net tuition and fees.

Residence hall and meal plan rates won’t increase.
