MU approves tuition hike, $119M budget - LACIE PIERSON, Herald-Dispatch

Marshall University's Board of Governors approved a 9 percent tuition increase to compensate for $3.2 million in cuts from the state Wednesday. Board members also approved a $119.3 million operating budget for fiscal year 2018, which begins Saturday, July 1, during their meeting in the Memorial Student Center. Board members voted 15-1 to increase tuition, and they voted 16-0 to approve the budget for fiscal year 2018. Marshall's student body president, Matt Jarvis, a double major in finance and economics from Nitro, West Virginia, was the lone vote against the tuition increase. Marshall President Jerome Gilbert said he spent almost every week of the special legislative session at the Capitol talking to lawmakers to avoid cuts to Marshall.
