WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The Board of Trustees at the University of North Carolina Wilmington held a special meeting Friday afternoon to discuss tuition.
Chancellor Gary Miller recommended increasing the cost of tuition for in-state students 10.7 percent for the 2012-13 academic year, a hike of about $600.
The board voted unanimously Friday in favor of the tuition increase. The plan will now go to the UNC-system Board of Governors. They will vote on the proposals in February.
Students at UNCW saw a 6.5 increase in tuition already this year.
Last month, UNC Chapel Hill approved a plan to raise in-state undergraduate tuition by $800, which is about 15 percent.
