NORFOLK — Old Dominion University is asking the Board of Visitors to consider no tuition increase for in-state undergraduate students and between a 3 to 5 percent increase for out-of-state undergraduates and all graduate students, effective summer semester.

In addition, non-educational and general fees will increase 3.4 to 3.9 percent for all students. These increases reflect the continued commitment to affordability at Old Dominion, which remains the most affordable public doctoral institution in the state.

The additional tuition and fee revenue will be used to retain and attract faculty, invest in STEM-H degree production, provide student financial assistance, maintain the operation of facilities, enhance the technology infrastructure and fund mandated compensation increases and board-approved capital investments in auxiliary fee-supported operations.

The FY2019-2020 tuition and fee proposal will be presented at the Board of Visitors meeting on April 25 at 9:30 a.m. in the Board Room on the second floor of the Broderick Dining Commons.

While the agenda for this meeting does not include public comments, the Board of Visitors welcomes comments on the proposal, which may be sent to Board of Visitors Student Representative Rafia Haq at
