Coastal Carolina OKs budget cuts, tuition increase

CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - Coastal Carolina University is closing an off-campus office and increasing tuition in anticipation of budget cuts in South Carolina.

The school announced in a news release on Friday that the board wants to cut $4 million from the 2010-11 budget.

The board approved a 5 percent tuition increase for in-state students and 8 percent for out-of-state students. Housing and meal plan fees will increase about 2 percent.

In-state students will pay $4,695 a semester and out-of-state students will pay $10,135. Housing fees will go up about $50 a semester.

The Georgetown outreach office to be shuttered had been open since 2004.
