CLEMSON — Clemson University’s board of trustees is raising undergraduate tuition by three percent as it tries to pay for more faculty, technology and facilities.

The university approved a tuition increase that amounts to $190 per semester for in-state students and $444 for out-of-state students. The school last year approved a 3 percent increase for in-state students and a 4 percent increase for out-of-state students.

The board also approved an average 3 percent increase in campus housing and meal plans, which amounts to an average of $68 per semester for housing and $46 per semester for meal plans.
