GREENSBORO, N.C. — It will cost more to go to N.C. A&T next year — $300 more for all students, and $525 extra for those who live on campus, according to the Greensboro News & Record.

University trustees voted Friday to ask the UNC Board of Governors to raise tuition and required student fees for the next two academic years. Trustees also approved increases in room rates, meal plans and parking.

Among the highlights:

Tuition: A&T wants to raise tuition by $100 for all students in 2015-16 and 2016-17. For in-state undergraduates, that’s a 3 percent increase each year to $3,370 next year and $3,470 the year after.

A&T said it will use the proceeds from the tuition increase on four things: to pay professors the university hopes to attract or retain; improve services that help students with their academics; increase student financial aid; and expand the university’s fundraising operation.
