University of Texas board approves tuition increase

AUSTIN, Texas (KTRK) -- Students at all University of Texas campuses will soon see their tuition go up.

The system's Board of Regents approved a tuition increase Monday for in-state undergraduate student tuition.

Depending on the school, tuition will go up anywhere from one to seven percent.

The flagship UT-Austin could see a two percent tuition increase, which could mean $200 more each year.

Students attending UT-Austin from out of state could be paying about $700 more each year.

The new rates will be in place for the fall 2018 semester.

The board says the money will support students and help with faculty recruitment.
