The price of attending a school in the University of Maine System is about to rise.
According to the Press Herald, the board of trustees approved a new budget that includes a 3 percent tuition increase for in-state students starting this fall.
The same will be the case for out-of-state students, but the increase will vary based on the school.
According to the Press Herald, the annual cost of attending a UMaine System school is expected to increase between $508 to $1,562 for an in-state student, topping out at $25,000 for UMaine Orono students, and $255 to $3,242 for an out-of-state student, topping out at $47,742 for UMaine Orono.
The price for room and board, and student fees will also rise.
Board members also adopted a five-year plan to help recover from falling enrollment.
