University of Mary Washington raises tuition 4.5 percent - LINDLEY ESTES, Free-Lance Star

Tuition is going up again at the University of Mary Washington. The school’s board of visitors voted unanimously to increase tuition 4.5 percent and fees 5.5 percent at its Friday meeting. With the already approved room and board rate increase of 2.8 percent, the total cost to attend UMW next academic year is increasing 3.9 percent, or $836 per in-state student. But before the vote, board member Edd Houck regaled the board with two parables about the real-world implications of their actions. He called the system that relies on tuition-based payers “atrocious, particularly for hard working middle-class people.”
