Winthrop University students may have to pay more for their classes next year.
Winthrop’s finance committee on Friday will review possible tuition increases for 2017-18, said Judy Longshaw, spokesperson for the university.
The committee will make a recommendation to be voted on by the board of trustees Friday.
The size of the potential increase is not yet known, Longshaw said.
Never miss a local story.
University of South Carolina’s trustees Friday also expected to consider a tuition hike, in the neighborhood of 3.4 percent, sources said.
USC has not announced the size of the proposed increase ahead of Friday’s trustees meeting. However, a 3.4 percent hike would be the largest in six years.
This summer, The Citadel, Coastal Carolina University, College of Charleston and S.C. State University all have OK’d tuition hikes – most in the range of 3 to 3.25 percent.
Winthrop’s board of trustees will meet at 1 p.m. Friday in the Gold Room of the DiGiorgio Campus Center, 2020 Alumni Drive in Rock Hill.
