George Mason University’s Board of Visitors (BOV) approved the lowest overall tuition and fee increase for students among Virginia’s colleges and universities for the upcoming academic year at its final regularly scheduled meeting of the year yesterday. This package included no change in tuition for undergraduate in-state students and a $24 per student increase in student fees. George Mason’s overall budget for the 2001-02 academic year was set at $365 million.

BOV members Edwin Meese and Sidney Dewberry also announced their intentions to contact the governor’s office to again urge that funds for the construction of Academic IV building be released. In another construction matter, preliminary work on the building of a new dormitory, to accommodate nearly 500 beds, begins in June. This facility will be located near President’s Park and the Aquatic and Fitness Center.

Belle Wheelan, president of Northern Virginia Community College, was present, along with President Alan Merten, to formally renew the student transfer agreement shared by the two institutions.
