  • July 19, 2014

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Tuition at the University of Pittsburgh, already the highest for in-state students among public universities in the United States, is about to go up under a nearly $2 billion budget approved by the trustees.

The rates were increased by 3.9 percent on Friday, bringing undergraduate tuition to just under $19,000 a year, the Tribune-Review reported.

Pitt officials say they’re seeing a record number of applicants, with more than 30,000 seeking 3,900 spots in the freshman class at the campus in the city’s Oakland neighborhood.

The average tuition across Pitt branch campuses will go up about 3.3 percent.
