The Board of Trustees of Brigham Young University has approved an increase of $50 per semester in undergraduate tuition for the 1990-91 school year. Tuition will be $950 per semester.

Tuition for advance-standing students will increase to $1,110 from $1,050, or 5.71 percent, and for law school and school of management students to $1,790 from $1,690, or 5.92 percent.BYU is still one of the best buys nationally in private higher education, according to Administrative Vice President Dee F. Andersen.

In recent years, BYU has ranked among the lowest 3.5 percent of about 1,200 four-year private universities in terms of tuition rates, according to the College Board Annual Survey of Colleges published in 1987.

College Board reports indicate that annual tuition and fees at private, four-year colleges are increasing by 9 percent this year to an average of $8,737 per student.

BYU also receives support from its sponsor, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Andersen said.

Students who are not members of the LDS Church pay one and a half times the member rate.
