Richmond, Va. (Newsradiowrva.com) - Virginia Commonwealth University's Board of Visitors has voted to increase tuition for the first time in four years. The increase is three percent. Fees are going up closer to five percent.

The increase is being used to fund higher salaries, increased financial aid, as well as increased overhead costs. It will put the average full-time in-state student's tuition at between $15,000 and $16,000.

The last time VCU increased tuition was for the 2018-2019 academic year.
