(Harrisburg) -- Tuition at Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities is going up by 3.5 percent.

The board of the State System of Higher Education voted today for the higher rate despite Governor Tom Wolf's request that it remain level.

The decision increases in-state undergraduate tuition by $240 to $7,060 a year. There's also a policy that means a technology fee will go up by $14 to $436 a year.

The state system schools are Bloomsburg, California, Cheyney, Clarion, East Stroudsburg, Edinboro, Indiana, Kutztown, Lock Haven, Mansfield, Millersville, Shippensburg, Slippery Rock and West Chester.

Their enrollment is about 100,000 students.
