UNC School of Medicine proposes 10.1% tuition hike

Chapel Hill, N.C.-based UNC School of Medicine has proposed growing the per-year cost of in-state tuition for its MD program by 10.1 percent, according to The Herald Sun.

The university has proposed increasing tuition by $2,500 for the 2017-18 academic year. The hike would make in-state tuition $27,337 and out-of-state tuition $54,216.

The tuition rate for in-state students also increased 13.7 percent for the 2016-17 school year and 15.6 percent for the 2015-16 academic year.

And this isn't the end of the increases. The university also proposes another $2,500 tuition hike for the 2018-19 academic year.

Julie Byerley, MD, the medical school's vice dean for education and chief education officer, noted that UNC School of Medicine will use 15 percent of the revenue gained from the hike to help fund "scholarships for students with financial need," according to the report.
