Southern Board Approves Tuition Increase
The Southern University System Board of Trustees yesterday approved a 10-percent tuition increase to begin this fall. The SUS is the last system in Louisiana to implement an increase.
Full-time undergraduate students will pay $5,806 in tuition and fees for the 2012-2013 academic year, according to calculations released by the Southern Board of Supervisors on Friday. That’s $628 more than what was charged in the 2011-2012 academic year. Tuition increased $518 and the student self-assessed fee went up $110, the Board documents stated.
Nonresident Southern students will pay $13,138 for the next academic year, or $1,412 more than last academic year, according to the board.
