College of Charleston tuition increase budgeted; trustees to vote

College of Charleston in-state students will pay about $300 more in tuition next year, if the Board of Trustees approves the proposed budget.

Out-of-state students would pay nearly $1,400 more. Both in-state and out-of-state graduate students would pay somewhat more than their respective counterparts.

The college’s Board of Trustees budget and finance committee meets Friday morning to consider the budget. A formal board vote would take place June 10 in Columbia. The committee is comprised of all board members.

The proposed increase mirrors a 3 percent increase for The Citadel cadets and graduate students that was approved in a similar preliminary vote earlier this week.
