Pennsylvania Universities Raise Tuition and Technology Fees

Fourteen state-owned schools have had to up costs

The state’s budget dilemmas—especially relative to education—have been well documented. Now, in response to the final budget, which was officially passed by the House Wednesday evening, the 14 state-owned universities have hiked tuition and technology fees. Tuition for in-state students will be raised more than seven percent and technology fees will more than double. If the state is trying to squeeze more money out of college students, the Scoop suggests taxing Solo cups and Forgetting Sarah Marsahall DVDs. [FOX 29]
