Students to pay more at College of Charleston

The College of Charleston is raising tuition for in-state students nearly 15 percent.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reports the school's board of trustees also approved a 6 percent tuition increase for out-of-state students at Monday's meeting in Columbia.
College of Charleston president George Benson says the steep increase was needed because of big cuts in state funding for the school. He says the college has lost more than $16 million in state money the past two years.
The total tuition increase for all students is just over $1,300, meaning South Carolina students will pay about $10,000 next school year, while students from outside the state will pay more than $23,000.
