U. Of Virginia Tuitions Here Stay at $8.50
Tuition for courses at the Northern Virginia Extension Division of the University of Virginia here are not expected to be increased in the immediate future, it was stated today by Dr. J. N.G. Finley, director of the program here.
The Board of Visitors at Charlottesville has recently approved a substantial increase in faculty salaries to be financed by raising student tuitions.

In an announcement by Colgate W. Darden, Jr., president of the University, the tuition full time resident students on the Charlottesville campus will be increased by $20 a session in most academic divisions, while an approximate $75 increase will be levied on non-Virginian
students at the University.

Dr. Finley noted that the tuition for students at the Northern Division Extension here had been increased two years ago from $7.50 to $8.50 per credit hour. He said that he had heard of no further plans to increase the tuition here.

The increased enrollments at the Northern Virginia Extension classes- held mostly at the Washington-Lee High School- have maintained the program as a paying proposition and has prompted extensive plans for creating an accredited Branch of the University in this area.
