ODU Board approves summer tuition and fees

Old Dominion University's Board of Visitors approved a tuition and fee schedule for summer 2012, but deferred discussion of setting tuition for the 2012-13 academic year until the commonwealth concludes its budget process.

An overall increase of 3 percent for undergraduate and graduate summer school tuition and mandatory fees was adopted at the April 4 meeting, as was a 4 percent increase in summer-session room and board. Old Dominion continues to have one of the lowest tuition rates in the commonwealth.

Under the new summer rates, an in-state undergraduate student will pay $8 more per credit hour, or $271, and an in-state graduate student will pay $12 more, or $391, per credit hour. For out-of-state students those rates are $764 per undergraduate credit hour and $991 per graduate credit hour. Summer room and board will average $4,274 for all students.

The summer term increases will help support summer semester faculty activities and programs, and Student Recreation Center operations. Room and board rose modestly to cover inflationary costs and the construction of a new dining facility.

The board will vote on tuition and fees for the 2012-13 academic year at its scheduled June meeting or a specially called session, once a state budget is passed.
