Auburn Raises Tuition Fees

Auburn, AL – Auburn University students will be paying more for their education next school year because trustees have approved a 12 percent tuition increase.

The school's board of trustees voted for the hike Friday and it will be applied to the main campus as well as Auburn Montgomery.

The increase is part of the university's attempt to offset a $60 million budget deficit to the AU System.

Tuition for Alabama students will go from $2,917 to $3,250 and rates for out-of-state students will be increased from $8,167 to $9,130.
