SOUTH BEND — The University of Notre Dame is raising undergraduate tuition by 3.8 percent to more than $46,000 next school year.

The school says the percentage increase is the same as in recent years. With average room and board rates of more than $13,000, total student charges for 2014-15 will be about $59,500.

Notre Dame's president, the Rev. John Jenkins, thanked parents in a letter for their investment in the university.

Jenkins also wrote that while surveys show college graduates earn more than those with high school degrees, the education is more important than simply earning potential. He says students are shaped in "profound ways" and exposed to a myriad of experiences that help them to become educated, ethical leaders.
