The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Board of Trustees approved proposed tuition and fees for 2014-15, including a tuition increase of more than 12 percent for non-resident undergrads.
Over past five years, UNC in-state undergraduate students have seen an average tuition increase of $544 a year. But the 2014-15 plan does not include a tuition increase for in-state undergrads.
Non-resident undergrads will pay 12.3 percent more in tuition, according to the plan.
As far as graduate students, in-state students will pay 4.2 percent more in tuition, while non-resident students will pay 1.4 percent more.
During the 2013-14 academic year, in-state undergrad tuition for students taking a full course load was $6,423 and out-of-state tuition was $28,205. In-state grad students paid $8,343 and out-of-state grad students paid $25,554.
In-state undergrads will face an increase in fees of $22.87 for the 2014-15 academic year.
The proposed plan will now go to the UNC Board of Governors and General Assembly for final approval.
