ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Virginia Tech's Board of Visitors is set to consider several options for tuition and fee increases for the upcoming academic year.
Board members are scheduled to meet Thursday in Arlington to weigh three options to raise in-state assessments. They include increases of 3.2 percent, 3.9 percent and 4.9 percent.
The Roanoke Times says Tech President Charles Steger and the university's chief financial officer, Dwight Shelton, will present the choices.
Visitors are also expected to approve increases for non-resident students, for room and board and advanced degrees.
Gov. Bob McDonnell has asked the state's higher education leaders to hold down in-state tuition increases for the 2012-13 academic year.
