OREM, Utah (AP) -- Students at Utah Valley State College could have to pay more for tuition next year.
Tuition could go up nine-point-five-percent next year -- the lowest increase in years.
The estimated increase would raise tuition each semester about one-hundred dollars.
Tuition increases at Utah public colleges and universities are twofold. First-tier tuition increases are determined by the Utah State Board of Regents. A second tier of tuition is set by each school.
The school's president told students last month that the second-tier tuition increase could be as high as eight-percent, making the whole tuition increase about 11-point-five-percent.
Now college administrators believe they can keep the increase at a lower level because the Legislature gave U-V-S-C some needed money.
