Troy University raises tuition again

TROY (AP) — Troy University trustees have raised tuition for the fourth time in five years.

Tuition will increase by nearly 12 percent for the next academic year. Undergraduate tuition will increase from $193 to $216 per credit hour and graduate tuition will increase from $220 to $246 per credit hour.

The general student fee will also increase from $8 to $24 per credit hour.

Jim Bookout, senior vice chancellor for finance and business affairs, said in a press release that a declining economy and three years of state funding cuts are the primary reasons behind the tuition increases. Bookout said over the past three years, state support for Alabama's four-year colleges has decreased 28 percent.
