The Board of Governors at West Virginia State University has approved tuition and fee increases of approximately 7 percent for in-state undergraduates.

The Charleston Gazette reports that the board approved the increases Thursday, sending the proposed hikes to the state Higher Education Policy Commission for final approval.

If approved, WVSU's annual tuition and fees for in-state undergraduate students will increase by $434, to $6,662.

For out-of-state undergrads, tuition and fees will increase by just over $1,000, to $15,572.

University officials blame the increasing tuition on decreases in state appropriations.
