MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Coastal Carolina University has increased tuition again.

All students, in-state and out-of-state, will pay three percent more in the 2015-2016 school year. The uptick equals an extra $155 per semester for in-state tuition and fees; an extra $380 will be tacked on to the cost of out-of-state tuition and fees.

Technology nor housing fees are expected to increase, according to a news release issued by the university.

Resident meal plans will now include five additional days of service, and the cost will increase between $75 and $125 depending upon the meal plan selected by the student. Aramark, the University's contracted food service provider, is the recipient of the meal plan fees.

For the 2014-2015 school year, in-state tuition and fees cost students $5,110. In that same year, out-of-state students paid $11,780, according to the CCU website.

South Carolina students from the 2013-2014 school year paid $4,840 to attend CCU. Out-of-state students paid $11,315 during the same year.
