A possible campus-initiated tuition increase at Appalachian State University has sparked whispers of tuition increases across the UNC system. ASU administrators are now considering a $200 tuition increase. The ASU Board of Trustees is expected to consider the proposed increase in December. Last year, five system schools raised tuition. The ASU proposal comes almost exactly a year after UNC-Chapel Hill trustees voted for the first of the five tuition increases. The Board of Governors eventually approved a $600 increase at UNC-CH that is being phased in this year and next.
