LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The University of Arkansas Board of Trustees is meeting this week to vote on tuition increases at its campuses across the state.
The board meets at 1 p.m. Tuesday in Little Rock.
Under the proposal, a resident undergraduate student at the Fayetteville campus would pay $7,818 for tuition and fees in the 2013-2014 school year. That's a 3.5 percent increase from the current rates.
Other proposed increases are: 10 percent at UA-Fort Smith, 4.9 percent at UA-Little Rock, 5.4 percent at UA-Monticello and 4.9 percent at UA-Pine Bluff.
For two-year schools, the increases range from 3.5 percent at the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville to 1.8 percent at the UA campus in Morrilton.
