WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Tuition is likely going up again at UNC Wilmington.

The UNCW Board of Trustees today approved a $283 tuition increase for in-state students for the 2013-14 academic year. The increase, though, is partially offset by a $138.60 overall reduction in fees.

Under the proposal, which must go to the UNC Board of Governors for approval, tuition and mandatory fees for in-state undergraduate students will increase by only 2.33 percent, or $144.40.

Although the fee proposal includes $101 in increases to support UNCW Athletics and technology upgrades, it reflects a $239.60 decrease in the funding the university uses to cover its debt service for funds borrowed to build and renovate the Student Recreation Center and the Fisher University Union.
