Being a Terp—or a student at any state university—will get more expensive next year.

Tuition and fees at  Maryland's state universities are going up, and students will see the change next school year. 

Officials with the University System of Maryland's Board of Regents say the tuition and fees hike will boost revenue by nearly $36 million.

They say tuition for Maryland residents won't increase by more than three percent at most schools, with one exception: tution for students' at Salisbury University, which will increase by six percent. 

With university fee increases, Maryland residents could pay a few hundred dollars more a year than what they're now paying now. 

For out of state students, the costs are higher. Tuition will rise more than four percent and students will pay up to about $1,000 more next year depending on the school.
