It will cost more to attend Miami University this fall. The board of trustees voted Friday to raise tuition 1.5%.
In dollar amount, that will be almost $200 for undergraduates in Oxford during the 2013-2014 school year.
In-state students will pay $13,266 in tuition, and out-of-state students will pay $29,056, also a 1.5% increase.
The board voted to raise tuition for graduate students by 1.5%, as well.
Miami officials say state legislature approved increases of up to 2%, however the university was able to keep that percentage a bit lower, citing efficiencies achieved on campus.
Trustees also passed an operating budget for fiscal year 2013-2014 of $667,455,287.
