Description

Baccalaureate public institutions of higher education; fixed four-year tuition rate. Requires the governing board of each baccalaureate public institution of higher education to prospectively fix the cost of tuition for incoming freshman Virginia students for four consecutive years, subject to eligibility conditions, beginning with the 2021-2022 academic year. The bill also provides that such institutions may additionally offer a variable in-state tuition rate as an option for such eligible students. The bill exempts the governing board of any such institution that maintains an undergraduate student population composed of at least 80 percent Virginia students from the requirement to establish a four-year fixed tuition rate.
