The University of South Carolina has raised tuition 6.9 percent for the 2010-2011 academic year, meaning undergraduates will pay $630 more next year for tuition. Trustees voted to raise annual tuition and mandatory fees to $9,786 beginning in the fall.
The increase will raise an additional $15 million for the university, which is reeling from a $103 million cut in state appropriation over the past two years.
Earlier this week, USC announced it would grow its freshman class by as many as 500 students to 4,400 freshman arriving in the fall. The additional students could raise $3.5 million for the university. – Staff Reports
