State budget shortfalls will likely force UVa and PVCC to increase their tuition rates, Eric Swensen reports in today’s Progress. It’s anticipated that they’ll have to raise their rates by 5%-9%. PVCC is pleased that their funding wasn’t cut by as much as it might have been — they’re likely to only have to raise the cost of a full-time education there by $50-$100 per semester to offset their roughly half-million dollar loss. UVa is having their funding cut by 15%-20%, for a total loss of $59M over the next two years. For all the gory details, just read the Progress article.
