Shepherd University Board of Governors approves tuition increases for FY14

March 14, 2013

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — The Shepherd University Board of Governors approved tuition increases for the fall semester at its meeting Thursday.

In-state undergraduate tuition will rise by $211 per semester, from $2,917 to $3,128, and $352 per semester for out-of-state students, from $7,568 to $7,920.

In-state graduate tuition will increase $31 per credit hour for in-state students, from $351 to $382, and $44 per credit hour for out-of-state students, from $498 to $542.

“In our financial deliberations, we took great care to protect affordability and student access to higher education,” said Shepherd University President Suzanne Shipley said. “Shepherd’s tuition increases this year were implemented to offset state budget cuts expected for fiscal year 2014.”

Room fees will increase an average of 5.26 percent to meet anticipated operational cost increases and capital projects. Meal plan rates will increase an average of 3.48 percent across all current meal plans.
