     The board voted at its February meeting to hike tuition for

apply to a number of other categories of students, including
full-time graduate students in Arts and Sciences and Engineering,
doctoral students at SAIS, doctoral and some master's degree
students at Nursing and at Public Health, and Ph.D. students in
Medicine. First-year M.D. candidates will pay the university's
highest full-time tuition, $21,800, an increase of 6.3 percent.
Medical students pay the same tuition each of their four years at

7.1 percent, to $15,000, for undergraduates and some master's
degree candidates in Nursing.
     Tuition for part-time Continuing Studies master's degree
courses in liberal arts and education in Washington, D.C., will
hold steady at $315 a credit hour. The largest percentage
increase in part-time tuition is 9.1 percent, to $1,195 a course,
