PROVO, Utah – Brigham Young University will be raising tuition by almost 3 percent for the 2016-2017 school year.

School officials said undergraduates will see a 2.9 percent increase with graduate students at 2.8 percent.

This will bring the undergraduate rate per semester from $2,575 to $2,650.

BYU said the increase will cover the higher costs of supplies, library and laboratory materials and travel.

Graduate student tuition will go from $3,250 to $3,340 per semester, an increase of $90.

Law School and Graduate School of Management students will pay $6,155, an increase of $170 from last year’s rate of $5,985.

Undergraduate tuition for spring and summer terms will also increase from $1,288 to $1,325, or $38 more.

Spring/summer 2015 rates for advanced-standing students will be $1,670, an increase of $45.

BYU said students who are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints pay twice the listed tuition rates, and those rates in 2016-2017 will also reflect the 2.9 percent increase for undergraduate and 2.8 percent increase for graduate programs.

Non-LDS undergraduates will pay $5,300, an increase of $150; non-LDS grad students will pay $6,680, an increase of $180; and non-LDS law and business graduate students will pay $12,310, an increase of $340.
