HARRISBURG – Four PA universities will boost their tuition despite calls from House Republicans to roll back the price hikes. The lawmakers argue Penn State, Pitt, Lincoln, and Temple Universities are receiving federal funds and do not need to increase tuition. According to a letter sent to the universities, the recent news that Gov. Tom Wolf will be using a pandemic response discretionary account to provide these universities with their sought-after 5% increase should lead these universities to halt planned tuition increases.
