BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Western Washington University has a new operating budget for next year that avoids a tuition increase for the majority of students.

Tuition will remain at about $7,500 for 88 percent of Western students next school year.

Western’s Communications Director Paul Cocke says they were able to keep tuition the same as last year for in-state undergrads.

There will be a three-percent tuition increase, about $225 for out-of-state-undergrads and for all graduate and MBA students.

The university has received additional government grants to expand its computer science and engineering programs, support new internship opportunities and offer more academic advising support.
