West Virginia University students will soon see an increase in their tuition and fees.

On Thursday, the Board of Governors approved new tuition rates for in-state students and out-of-state students.

The plan includes an 8% increase for all in-state students per year and a 4% increase for students from other states. In-state tuition is now expected to cost roughly $7,000 annually. The out-of-state cost is estimated to be approximately $20,500. WVU students have seen a tuition hike every year for the past four years.

After a vote was held WVU president Gordon Gee said, "While we recognize that increasing the tuition even one dollar is a concern for our current and prospective students, a West Virginia University education remains one of the best investments you can make."

The BOG also approved the 2015 fiscal year budget which will go into effect on July 1.
