CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - In-state tuition is increasing at least 6% at five West Virginia higher education institutions due to state funding cuts.
 
The Higher Education Policy Commission approved tuition increases for the 2013-2014 academic year at Bluefield State College and West Virginia University, West Virginia State, Fairmont State and Shepherd universities.
 
Media outlets report that the increases approved Tuesday range from 6 percent at WVU to 9 percent at West Virginia State.
 
Tuition also is going up at other state schools. But those increases are less than 5 percent. The commission's approval is required if tuition increases exceed 5 percent.
 
All state colleges and universities are facing a 9 percent cut in state funding for the fiscal year that begins July 1.
