OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The regents who govern Oklahoma State University are set to vote on a proposed $964 million budget for the OSU system.

The Oklahoma A&M regents are meeting Friday at OSU's Tulsa campus to consider the budget that includes the main campus in Stillwater and other campuses in Oklahoma City and Okmulgee.

Regents could also consider any proposals to raise tuition and mandatory fees, although OSU President Burns Hargis has said no such increases are planned.

In other business, the regents also will consider proposals from Langston University to sponsor two charter schools in Oklahoma City.

Langston already sponsors a charter school in Tulsa under a state law passed in 2007 that allowed colleges and universities to do so in Oklahoma and Tulsa counties.
