PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA -- Students at the University of Pittsburgh are facing higher tuition costs.
Under a budget approved Friday by school trustees, undergraduate tuition at the main campus will increase by 5.5%, or around $732.00 a year.
The board also approved a 2.5% hike on the Bradford, Greensburg, Johnstown and Titusville branch campuses, and a 3.0% increase for out-of-state students.
Pitt Chancellor Mark Nordenberg said even with the hike, the school's "revenue streams continue to be under stress."
