The cost to attend Duke University will rise for the 2016-17 academic year, the school’s board of trustees decided Saturday.
The total cost for undergraduates, including room and board, will increase 3.8 percent to $65,703 for the year, the university said in a news release. Tuition will rise 4 percent to $49,575.
Tuition for Duke’s graduate and professional programs will see increases of 3 percent to 7.3 percent. The highest increase is for the Nicholas School of the Environment, where tuition will rise 7.3 percent to $37,250, and the smallest increase is at the School of Medicine, where tuition will go up 3 percent to $55,180.
Half of Duke students get financial aid from the school.
