Affording a higher education is become a bigger problem each year with increasing costs, in addition to challenges with the paying back of student loans.

While the USA continues to slip in education, tuition costs continue to go up.

The WV Higher Education Policy Commission allowed Fairmont State University, Marshall University, West Liberty University and West Virginia University to boost in-state undergrad tuition.

Fairmont State's has a 6.6 percent increase, Marshall University's 9.1 percent increase within the School of Pharmacy program, West Liberty's 9.1 percent increase within the Nursing program and WVU's 7.8 percent increase.

Among all four-year schools, the rates would increase by an average of 5.44 percent, or $320, raising the total per-semester cost to $6,211 for out-of-state students and $3,106 for in-state students.
