George Mason’s Board of Visitors (BOV) unanimously approved tuition and fee increases for the upcoming summer term and for the 2002-03 academic year at its March meeting held yesterday in Mason Hall.

Regarding summer term, the BOV raised tuition and fees per credit hour for in-state undergraduate students from $158 to $172, an 8 percent increase; for in-state graduate students from $191 to $208.50, a 9 percent increase; for out-of-state students from $529 to $571.50, an 8 percent increase; for in-state law students from $289 to $325.82, a 12 percent increase, and for out-of-state law students from $668 to $686.82, a 2 percent increase.

Regarding the 2002-03 academic year, the BOV’s decision came with the following caveat: the action will be reconsidered if the level of state funding is increased in the next 30 days as a result of actions taken by the General Assembly and/or the governor. The BOV raised tuition and fees for the 2002-03 academic year (annual increase) for in-state undergraduate students from $3,792 to $4,416, a 16 percent increase; for in-state graduate students, from $4,584 to $5,004, a 9 percent increase; for out-of-state students from $12,696 to $13,716, an 8 percent increase; for in-state law students from $8,092 to $9,123, a 12 percent increase; and for out-of-state law students from $18,704 to $19,232, a 2.8 percent increase.
