University of Pittsburgh Increases Tuition

Tuition at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford is going up by 2.5 percent.

The board of trustees approved the increase today for the Bradford, Greensburg, Johnstown and Titusville campuses. Tuition for in-state students at the main campus will increase by 5.5 percent, or $722. The increase for out-of-state students is 3 percent.

Pitt Chancellor Mark Nordenberg says the school has managed to move forward in the bad economy, but revenue streams continue to be under stress.

He said the board juggled rising costs with the need to limit tuition increases.
