Tuition Hikes Approved By Oklahoma Regents For Higher Education

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education have approved increases in mandatory tuition and fees for the state's public colleges and universities.

The panel voted unanimously on Thursday to increase the costs for undergraduate students by an average of 8.4 percent statewide.

The tuition and fee increases for undergraduate students ranged from 3.7 percent at Langston University to about 13 percent at Rose State College.

The increases come after the Oklahoma Legislature slashed funding for the state colleges and universities because of a state budget shortfall.
