University Tuition

Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education could be changing the way it sets tuition prices. Currently, tuition is determined annually by the Board of Governors in Harrisburg, and the same rate is charged at all 14 state-owned universities. Under a new proposal, flexibility would be added to the process, giving university presidents the option of setting prices, within certain parameters. A base tuition rate would still be set by the board in the event a university president decides not to set prices.
