PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Tuition will be increasing for Temple University students this Fall.

The university’s Board of Trustees voted Thursday to increase tuition by 2.8 percent for the 2013-2014 school year.

In-state students will see a $400 dollar increase to $12,406.  Out-of-state students will see a $600 increase to $23,432.

Tuition rates were frozen this past school year.

In addition, the trustees increased the mandatory student fee from its current $590 to $690 per year.

The student fee has been frozen for the last four years. The university says the fee increase is in response to rising demand for student services.
