    USM logoPRINCESS ANNE, MD. - (May 16, 2012) -- The University System of Maryland's governing board approved tuition increases for the 2013-14 academic year that call for a 3-percent increase for in-state undergraduates at all but one of the system's four-year institutions.

    The exception is Salisbury University, where resident undergraduate tuition will rise by 6 percent, which the system explained was "the third in a series of market adjustments."

    Here's how the regents' decision on tuition and mandatory fees affects University of Maryland Eastern Shore students for the next school year:

    Out-of-state students and doctoral candidates in the School of Pharmacy at UMESwill pay 4 percent more toward tuition than a year ago under the plan approved Wednesday.

    UMES undergraduates will be charged an athletic fee of $750, a $150 increase in what is known as an "auxiliary fee."  The adjustment was made to assist UMES in becoming compliant with a university system policy that requires intercollegiate athletic departments to be self-supporting because they receive no state funds.

    Fees for housing and meals at UMES for the next school year have not been announced.
