OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Undergraduate in-state students at Oklahoma State University's main campus in Stillwater likely will face a 4.85 percent hike in tuition and fees for the next school year.

Regents who govern the university will meet Friday in Tulsa to vote on the proposed increase. If they approve the increase, the cost for a typical two-semester load of 30 credit hours will be $7,107. That's $328 more than for the just-completed school year.

According to the meeting agenda, university officials say "it is a constant concern" to keep such increases "at a minimum" because "OSU wants to be an easy, affordable choice for everyone."

The university received a 4.8 percent cut in state funding for the fiscal year that starts July 1.
