Temple tuition goes up 10 percent for Pa. students
PHILADELPHIA - July 1, 2011 (WPVI) -- Temple University in Philadelphia is hiking annual tuition by 10 percent this fall to make up for deep cuts in state aid.
Temple announced Friday that both in-state and out-of-state residents will pay about $1,200 more in the coming school year. Tuition for Pennsylvania students will cost just over $13,000, up from about $11,800.
Temple is the first of four state-related universities to set its tuition following approval of the state budget on Thursday.
The final spending plan signed by Gov. Tom Corbett reduces aid to Temple, Penn State, Lincoln and the University of Pittsburgh by 19 percent. Corbett had originally proposed 50 percent cuts.
Fourteen state-owned universities will raise tuition 7.5 percent next year. Their state aid was cut by 18 percent.
