CLEMSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Clemson University trustees announced the lowest tuition increase in two decades for the 2017-18 academic year.

Beginning in August, tuition will rise by 2.75 percent for in-state undergraduates and 4.25 percent for out-of-state undergraduates. The hike will cost approximately $197 more per semester for full-time in-state students and $727 more per semester for out-of-state tuition.

The tuition increase is the lowest in the university's last 20 years.

In 2015, it increased by at least 3.24 percent and in 2016 by at least 3.14 percent.

President James Clements said the increase will allow the university to continue to provide high-quality education to students.

The price of on-campus housing and meal plans will also increase, by $158 and $90 respectively per semester.

“This past year has been tremendous on many levels and the future is as bright as ever at Clemson University,” said Clements. “The trustees’ action today, along with the state’s ongoing support of higher education, will allow Clemson to continue to make important investments on behalf of our students as we work to fulfill our mission of being a top 20 public university.”
