A 4 percent tuition increase could await University of Pittsburgh students in fall 2010 if the school receives a 5 percent increase in its state appropriation for fiscal year 2010-11.

The school's annual budget request to Harrisburg appeared yesterday in the University Times, which is published by Pitt, and was confirmed by campus officials.

Pitt and the other three state-related schools -- Lincoln, Penn State and Temple universities -- do not yet know their appropriation amounts for this fiscal year that began July 1. That's because their subsidies are caught up in negotiations over yet-to-be-passed table games legislation.

Pitt's request for $194.7 million for fiscal 2010-11 is based on what the school expects it will receive this year. The base undergraduate rate at Pitt is currently $13,344 a year.
