RD242 - Report of 2019-20 Tuition and Mandatory Fee Increases for in-State Undergraduate Students

Executive Summary:

The 2019 General Assembly provided a total of $52.5 million in general fund for Virginia public institutions for in-state undergraduate tuition moderation in FY2020 contingent on institutions maintaining tuition and mandatory educational and general (E&G) fee charges for in-state undergraduate students at the FY2019 level. It also provided additional funds to the Virginia Community College System for general operating support and to all public institutions for faculty and staff salary increases.

The General Assembly directed the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) to certify whether each institution met the tuition freeze requirements of the In-State Undergraduate Affordability fund and to report to the Governor, Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees and the Director of the Department of Planning and Budget by July 1, 2019.
