Shippensburg raising tuition, fees

June 14, 1999|By GREG SIMMONS

Shippensburg University will raise its annual cost to students by about $330, said Shippensburg director of public relations, Pete Gigliotti.

The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education's Board of Governors passed a $150-per-year tuition increase Thursday, and the Shippensburg administration passed a $175-per-year fee hike May 21. The two costs make up the total increase.

Included in the new fees is a hike of $120 in housing and eating costs, based on a 15-meal-per-week plan.

The total cost to attend the Pennsylvania college will now be about $8,400. The cost has risen about 3.9 percent since last year, higher than annual inflation, which was 2.2 percent as of April, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
