Pa. Universities Get Flexibility on Tuition Rates

The board that oversees Pennsylvania's state-owned universities has given the green light to experiments that could give individual campuses more flexibility in setting tuition and fees.

The State System of Higher Education board Thursday approved two-year pilot projects at five of the 14 universities. Each project also requires approval from the individual universities.
 
Chancellor Frank Brogan says the proposals could produce "a sea change" for the system and that pilot projects will show whether the proposed changes are effective.
 
Edinboro University, near Erie, is proposing two projects. One would reduce tuition for out-of-state students to bolster recruitment, and the other would impose a new fee to offset the cost of its nursing program.
 
Projects also were approved for California, West Chester, East Stroudsburg and Clarion universities.
