HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — Students at New Hampshire's Dartmouth College will see tuition go up nearly 3 percent for the next academic year.

The college's Board of Trustees approved the 2.9 percent hike at its meeting Saturday.

Undergraduate tuition will increase $1,319 to nearly $47,000. The total cost of tuition, room, board and fees will be about $62,000.

Tuition for the Geisel School of Medicine will go up 5 percent to $56,104 for the next academic year. Tuck School of Business tuition will go up 4.5 percent to $61,605.

The trustees say the tuition hikes are the lowest percentage wise since 1977.

Dartmouth College is budgeting $85 million for financial aid next year — a nearly 6 percent increase over the current year's awards.

The trustees also approved a $1 billion operating budget.
