Tuition will only go up 1% at Vermont State Colleges System
MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Tuition at the Vermont State Colleges System will only increase by 1% this fall because of a boost in state funding.
The $2.5 million in funding will reduce a 3% tuition increase for undergraduate Vermont students that was scheduled to go into effect this fall.
The reduction will benefit full-time Vermont students with annual savings of $192 to $336, depending on which college and program they attend. The savings would be around $120 for Community College of Vermont students taking two full semesters of courses.
The system comprises Castleton University, the Community College of Vermont, Northern Vermont University, and Vermont Technical College.
