Think your tuition is high?

USF trustees approved an 11 percent tuition increase yesterday for in-state undergrads.

But what about everyone else?

Their costs aren’t going up as much, but they’re already paying their share.

- Out-of-state students will see an 8 percent increase in the fee that’s tacked on to their tuition, which will bring their annual bill up to $16,257.

- Florida grad students will be charged an additional 8 percent in tuition, for a total of $10,414, including fees.

- In-state grad students in business and engineering will have to pay even more, $11,277.

- Tuition and fees will jump to $20,603 for out-of-state grad students.

- Med students from outside Florida are getting sort of a break. Their tuition is rising by 8 percent but the out-of-state fee is going down 10 percent. The total: $54,951 a year.

- In-state med student tuition and fees will rise to $33,761.

You can check out the USF staff proposal here. Everything was approved yesterday.

The 11 percent in-state undergrad hike needs the approval of the state Board of Governors, which meets next week. You can find that agenda here.
