But out-of-state student tuition will remain at the current level.

Shepherd's board of governors approved a 3.96 in-state tuition increase for undergraduates last week. Undergraduate in-state tuition will increase from $3,285 to $3,415 per semester. Out-of-state undergraduate tuition will remain at $8,314 per semester. Board members also approved a 2.19 percent average increase in room rates, and a 1.97 average increase in meal plans.
