State Lawmakers Examine Increases In College Tuition

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- State lawmakers have learned that in spite of recent tuition hikes, Oklahoma's higher education system remains a relative bargain.

The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education says Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma are the most affordable schools in the Big 12 Conference.
