The Board of Visitors raised tuition and fees by 15-percent yesterday for in-state undergraduates. Room and board is also going up by 4-percent. That means it will cost an in-state undergrad an extra 848 dollars a year to go to the University. The measure was also supported by the student body. Officials say Radford remains one of the most affordable schools in the state, but is still also one of Virginia's most under funded Universities.
