Tuition at the University of Pittsburgh at Titusville will be the same for the 2018-19 academic year as it was for the previous academic year.

The University of Pittsburgh Board of Trustees met Monday, when they approved the university’s $2.3 billion budget and set tuition rates for all five Pitt campuses.

Tuition for both in-state and out-of-state students will remain the same at Pitt-Titusville. In-state tuition will remain at $10,958 and $15,936 for in-state nursing students. Out-of-state tuition will remain at $20,702 and $29,644 for nursing students.

The cost of room and board at Pitt-Titusville will increase by 3 percent. A double room will cost $5,670 for the academic year.

“The University has delivered on its commitment to control tuition,” said Dr. Lawrence Feick, interim president of Pitt-Bradford and the University of Pittsburgh at Titusville. “Our students at the Bradford and Titusville campuses will be able to continue to take advantage of the many opportunities at Pitt.”

“All of us on the Bradford and Titusville campuses are grateful to our legislators for strengthening their investment in our university as well as approving a budget in a timely fashion, which will enable us to plan more efficiently for the coming academic year.”

Last month, the Pennsylvania legislature and Gov. Tom Wolf approved a budget that included a 3 percent increase in the appropriation for the University of Pittsburgh and the Commonwealth’s other state-related universities.
