UNC Pembroke's Board of Trustees unanimously approved Friday, March 22, a $150 increase in tuition for the 2002-3 school year.
An eight percent in-state and 12 percent out-of-state tuition hike is pending before the North Carolina General Assembly.
The $150 "campus-based" tuition hike is in addition to the proposed system wide increase. Campus-based tuition, now going into its second year, will be $236.40 for 2002-3. It is the second lowest among the 16 UNC universities.
