Tuition Increase At Wesleyan

View Comments

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) _ Wesleyan University’s board of trustees has approved a 3.8 percent tuition increase.

The decision comes as Wesleyan also plans to increase its financial aid budget by almost 12 percent. The new tuition would be about $43,400 starting this fall.

Freshmen and sophomores will also pay a room and board fee of about $12,000. It will be about $13,700 for juniors and seniors who pay more because they have more housing and dining options.

Wesleyan President Michael Roth says the university is financially stable and has cut costs over the last three years. He says the tuition and fees are being raised only enough to ensure the continuing quality of the school’s programs.

Wesleyan has about 2,800 full-time undergraduates and hundreds of graduate students.
