CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The trustees at Xavier University have voted to raise tuition 5 percent beginning next fall.

The increase raises tuition to $14,650 per semester, which is about $700 higher than what it is this semester.

In addition, trustees also approved an additional $500 tuition increase of the Williams College of Business.

School officials say the increase will allow the school to add six new faculty members and increase technology.

According to the College Board, the average financial package for Xavier this school year is $16,676.
