JUNEAU-- The University of Alaska Board of Regents have voted 9-1 to increase tuition.

The board on Friday approved what the university system is calling the lowest increase in over a decade.

The board, meeting in Juneau, approved UA President Pat Gamble's proposal to raise tuition by 2 percent for resident undergraduates and 4 percent for nonresident undergraduates. Regents also approved a 2 percent increase to the graduate resident and nonresident rate.

This would apply to all UA campuses and take effect beginning in the fall of 2013.

The university says an undergraduate, full-time student enrolled in 15 credits should expect an increase of $45-$60 per semester. Information provided by the system shows the increase would be $105-$204 per semester for out-of-state, full-time undergraduates.
