George Mason’s Board of Visitors (BOV) approved a 6.9 percent hike in summer school tuition and fees at its March meeting yesterday. In reaching this decision unanimously, it was noted by administrators that this is slightly lower than a projected 8.5 percent average increase in summer tuition by Virginia’s other colleges and universities.

Specifically, in-state undergraduate students at Mason this summer will pay $242.75 per credit hour while in-state graduate students will pay $279.25 per credit hour. Mason’s out-of-state students will pay $705 per credit hour. In-state law students will pay $420 per credit hour; out-of-state law students will pay $830 per credit hour.

The BOV is expected to take action on Mason’s tuition for the 2005-06 academic year at its May meeting.

In other action, the BOV approved the following new degrees: BA in environmental science and policy and an MS in epidemiology and biostatistics. It also elected member William P. Johnson as its new secretary for the remainder of the current academic year.
