Tuition at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston is going up an average of 6 percent next year.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reported that Provost Mark Sothmann said students were notified of the increase Monday.
Sothmann says the school has a complicated tuition schedule for its six colleges. He says the increases range between 5 percent and 8 percent for the school year beginning in the fall. For example, the School of Dental Medicine tuition will increase from about $13,800 to about $14,600 in the fall.
The school has planned to raise tuition 7.1 percent last year, but cut it to a 7 percent increase after state officials threatened to ban new construction at schools that raised tuition more than 7 percent.
