The Board of Governors for Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education for the first time in its 38-year history recently froze basic in-state tuition for a second consecutive year, even while confronting financial challenges brought on in part by the coronavirus pandemic.

Basic in-state tuition for undergraduate students at the system’s 14 universities will remain at $7,716 for the 2020-21 academic year. Also remaining the same will be the system’s technology fee for students, which stands at $478 for the academic year. The Board voted to freeze tuition and the technology fee unanimously.
