East Carolina University trustees met Friday morning and gave their okay to a hefty tuition hike that is being proposed for students.
The tuition hike proposal now goes to the UNC Board of Governors. The hike is 9.5% for in-state undergrads and 9.9% for everyone else.
If approved, tuition and fees for in-state undergrads would go up $505, while for out-of-state undergrads it would be a $1,740 hike.
The General Assembly will eventually have to give their okay to the tuition hike as well.
