DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC)- Delaware State University's board of trustees has approved a plan to hold tuition at current levels.

Officials outlined plans to hold tuition steady and seek revenue elsewhere at a Board of Trustees meeting Monday. Both the annual in-state and out-of-state tuition and fees for DSU in 2013-2014 will remain the same as they have been in the current school year -- $7,336 and $15,692, respectively.

The tuition freeze is tied to plan to boost enrollment at the Dover main campus by 3 percent.

Board Vice Chairman David Turner says the finance committee discussed focusing on student retention and staying efficient. DSU will also move its New Castle County campus from downtown Wilmington.

About 85 students will move to a former U.S. Army Reserve building in Milltown DSU obtained in 2011. The university estimates the new location will help boost revenue by about $7 million over 10 years.
