Full-time undergraduate students from South Carolina will pay $10,558 in annual tuition, according to CofC spokesman Mike Robertson. Their out-of-state counterparts will pay $27,548 per year.

Graduate School tuition will cost $11,614 for in-state students and $30,304 for out-of-state students, Robertson said.

“The tuition increase associated with this year’s budget will likely leave the College of Charleston’s tuition ranking sixth for in-state tuition among South Carolina’s 13 four-year public universities,” Robertson said in a statement.

Last year, the college increased tuition by 3.16% for in-state undergraduate students and by 5.5% for out-of-state undergraduate students.

“We have worked to minimize tuition increases over the past several years, while at the same time maintaining the high quality of our academic programs,” board chairman Greg Padgett said in a statement. “The board of trustees remains committed to maintaining our academic quality at a reasonable price.”
