ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) — The Utah Board of Regents has approved a 4 percent tuition hike for public colleges and universities.
The Deseret News reports the board Friday approved the smallest statewide tuition increase in over a decade.
It also voted to allow the University of Utah, Utah State University and Snow College to raise tuition by up to 2 percent.
Commissioner of Higher Education David Buhler said more state dollars from the Legislature this year will ease the financial burden on students.
Undergraduate students paying in-state tuition will owe about $380 more at the University of Utah, $290 more at Utah State University and an extra $170 at Snow.
Students will see tuition bills rise by about $200 at Southern Utah University and about $115 at Salt Lake Community College.
