CWU student costs to go up $1,200 for most

ELLENSBURG — In-state undergraduate students going to Central Washington University will pay at least $1,200 more this fall.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reported the school’s board of trustees approved higher student fees and a 14 percent tuition hike on Friday.

A full-time student living on campus with a meal plan will pay about $17,371, compared to $16,135 this past year.

Every public college and university in Washington is raising tuition by double-digit percentages.

Students at the University of Washington and Washington State University will see 16 percent increases. Eastern and Western Washington universities plan on 14 percent increases. Evergreen State College is increasing tuition by 11 percent.

The higher costs come after state lawmakers cut public money for higher education and gave the universities permission for the large tuition increases to make up for the cuts.
