WSU won't raise tuition next year

Jul 2, 2013

For the first time in 27 years, tuition will not increase next year for students at Washington State University.

The WSU Board of Regents on Monday rescinded a previously approved 2 percent tuition increase for the 2013-14 school year.

The state's 2013-15 operating budget, signed Sunday by Gov. Jay Inslee, states there will be no tuition increases at any of the state's public universities for the 2013-14 school year.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports that in the past four years alone, tuition at WSU has risen by about 70 percent, to about $11,000 per year.
