OREM, Utah (AP) -- Utah Valley State College students may soon have to dig deeper in their pockets for tuition.

The school's president, William Sederburg said tuition is expected to rise at least 8-percent next year.

Yesterday he told students, the Legislature is expected to vote to increase tuition by three to four-percent and school officials will likely add another five to eight-percent on top of that.

U-V-S-C officials hope the Legislature will give them enough money for operating costs and building maintenance so the school-imposed part of the tuition increase will go directly to student-related programs.

Trustees hope to hire more career and academic advisers, create an honors program, improve classroom technology and raise salaries of faculty and staff.
