Old Dominion University Approves Modest Tuition Increase

The Old Dominion University Board of Visitors unanimously approved a 5 percent tuition and fees increase for the 2018-19 academic year during a May 14 meeting.

Gregory DuBois, vice president for administration and finance, said the modest tuition and fees increase will equate to $261 per semester for full-time in-state students. For students residing on campus, the total cost of tuition and fees, room and board will increase 4.2 percent.

"In making their decision, the board considered the impact of escalating college costs on Virginia students and their families in an effort to keep higher education affordable and accessible," said Carlton Bennett, the rector of Old Dominion's Board of Visitors. "The 2018-19 tuition and fees increase will support student success initiatives and the recruitment and retention of faculty to further enhance students' learning experience. Old Dominion remains the Commonwealth's most affordable doctoral research institution.*"
