Pennsylvania’s 14 state universities, including West Chester and Cheyney, will raise tuition 3 percent, or $194, for 2013-14 under a measure approved by the board of governors Tuesday.

In-state undergraduate students who attend full time will pay $6,622 annually next academic year. Nearly 90 percent of the system’s students are Pennsylvanians. The technology fee will rise $10, or 2.8 percent, for in-state students, to $368 annually.

Even with the revenue from the tuition increase, the state system will have to cut $50 million from its $1.6 billion budget this year, prompting concern from faculty union leadership.
