UD and DSU getting pricier

    The Board of Trustees at both the University of Delaware and Delaware State University have approved increases in costs for students.

    Students at the University of Delaware and Delaware State University will be paying more for their education starting next year.

    Earlier this week, UD’s Board of Trustees approved a $582 increase in room and board.  Student fees are also going up by $111 for UD students.  The money will be used to upgrade athletic facilities and other improvements.  A tuition rate increase will be considered at the Board’s summer meeting.

    A tuition rate increase has already been approved by Delaware State University’s Board of Trustees.  The increase means an extra $125 per semester for instate students, and an additional $338 for out-of-state students.  A possible price increase for housing will be determined in the near future.
