It’s going to cost more to go to college for thousands of students at Pennsylvania’s state universities. Tuition is going up this fall at the state's 14 public universities.

Officials announced Tuesday that it will cost $194 more per year to attend schools in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. That's up 3 percent from last year.

The annual cost of tuition for in-state residents now totals $6,622. Rates are also going up for non-resident and graduate students.

The universities are in Bloomsburg, California, Cheyney, Clarion, East Stroudsburg, Edinboro, Indiana, Kutztown, Lock Haven, Mansfield, Millersville, Shippensburg, Slippery Rock and West Chester.

About 115,000 students attend the schools, and about 90 percent are from Pennsylvania.
