ECU Trustees Approve Tuition Hike

College students at East Carolina will have to shell out more money for school, the question is how much more?

ECU trustees unanimously approved a rate increase of 3.6 percent Friday.

ECU says that would mean undergraduate tuition goes up $90 to $2,581 a year and fees up another $80.

But just how much tuition at ECU and other state universities will rise is still up in the air.

The General Assembly now has the power to authorize tuition hikes for all 16 universities, and lawmakers are proposing an eight percent hike amounting to $200 more a year.

University spokesman John Durham says UNC President Erskine Bowles will ask lawmakers to reverse that decision and let individual schools again make the decision on tuition hikes.
