RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- In-state tuition and mandatory fees at Virginia's universities and community colleges is up an average of 5.1 percent or $612 this school year.           

The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia's recent report to lawmakers found that students at four-year institutions will pay an average of $13,370 while community college students will pay an average of $4,620.           

Room and board charges at four-year schools will average $10,633, up 3.5 percent from last school year.
