A Youngstown State University trustees' committee has recommended that undergraduate students pay $94 more per semester beginning next fall.
The Vindicator reports that the full trustee board must approve the recommendation from this past Thursday.
The board is scheduled to meet March 12 to consider the proposals, which raise tuition about 2.4 percent for undergraduates and 3 percent for graduate students.
The increases will generate about $2 million in revenue, which officials say is needed to offset declining state funding and enrollment.
Neal McNally, director of YSU budget planning and treasury operations, says Youngstown State tuition is $1,600 below the state average even with the increase.
