BYU announced Friday that they will be raising their tuition by almost 3 percent for the 2016-2017 academic year, according to Deseret News.

The hike in tuition prices is due to a system-wide raise of tuition throughout the state of Utah, according to Deseret News.

The tuition rate for undergraduates will raise by $75, making the total price $2,650 per semester. Graduate students will need to pay $90 more, making the total price $3,340.

Students attending law school at BYU, as well as students attending the Graduate School of Management, will see an increase of $170, making tuition $6,155 per semester.

The spring and summer semesters will also have an increase of $38 for undergrads, making the tuition price $1,335, while graduate students attending spring and summer semesters will pay $1,670, an increase of $45 per semester.

“Additional tuition dollars at BYU will cover increased costs for supplies, travel and library and laboratory materials, according to a press release from the school,” according to Deseret News.
