OU Board of Regents to consider university tuition hikes

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ The University of Oklahoma Board of Regents will consider raising tuition and fees by an average of about 5 percent at OU during its regular meeting on Wednesday.

The regents also will consider tuition hikes at two other universities it governs, Rogers State University in Claremore and Cameron University in Lawton.

The items were placed on the board's agenda, which was posted on Monday.

For a resident student at OU taking 15 credit hours, the flat rate of tuition and fees will increase about $185, from $3,847 to $4,032.

The Board of Regents for Oklahoma State University and the A&M Colleges approved similar rate hikes at its regular meeting last week.

The cuts follow the Oklahoma Legislature's decision to cut state appropriations for higher education by about 2.4 percent.
