Wilson College announced this week it will hold the line on tuition again next year for full-time, undergraduate students. The decision, made by the Board of Trustees at its October meeting, means that the 2013-14 tuition rate for full-time undergraduates will remain at $28,745 for the third year in a row, according to a news release from the school. The board also voted to keep housing fees at the current rate while approving modest hikes in fees for meals and technology. Food costs will go up 5 percent and the technology fee will increase 3 percent in 2013-14 to cover only the direct increases in the college's cost of providing the services.
