ADELPHI, Md. (AP) — Students at University System of Maryland schools will be paying more next year.

The Board of Regents approved an increase in tuition rates and student fees Wednesday. The increases are expected to boost the system's revenue by $50 million.

Most undergraduates who are Maryland residents will see a 5 percent increase. But University of Maryland, Baltimore County students will see a 7 percent increase since the school deferred a mid-year 2 percent tuition hike.

Tuition for in-state graduate students could rise as much as 13 percent.

The board also approved differential pricing for juniors and seniors in three majors at the University of Maryland, College Park. The school requested the change to keep up with the higher costs of instruction for business, engineering, and computer science.
