Tuition Up, Dollars Down At Penn College
WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - Students at Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport are going to have to pay more for their education.
The board of directors on Thursday unanimously approved a $92 million operating budget and nearly five percent increase in tuition for in-state students for the 2009-10 school year.
That means a full-time, instate student taking an average of 15 credits per semester at Penn College will pay about $12,480 in tuition and fees. Outof state students will see an increase to more than $15,000.
The state Legislature has not yet passed its budget for 2009-10, but Penn's budget anticipates a six percent appropriations decrease to just over $12 million. That represents about 13 percent of Penn's operating costs.
