HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Marshall University’s tuition is going up.

The college on Wednesday announced its board of governors has approved a 3.5% tuition and fee increase.

In-state undergraduate students will see their bills increase $142 per semester while non-resident pupils will pay $326 more.

College President Jerome A. Gilbert says they looked at several scenarios to avoid an increase but felt the higher prices were necessary to keep pace with inflation.

The new tuition and fee system will begin with the fall 2019 semester.
