NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Tuition at the University of Oklahoma is expected to increase nearly 10% for the upcoming school year.

If approved by the OU regents this week, it will be the school's most significant hike in tuition and mandatory fees in three years.

The seven-member board of regents is meeting this week in Ardmore, where they're expected to approve the tuition hike requested by OU President David Boren.

The hike would include a 9.7% increase for in-state students and a 9.9% raise for out-of-state students.

If approved, in-state students will have to pay$5,607 for 30 credit hours, an increase of $498.

The 30-hour cost for out-of-state students would rise to $14,721 dollars, which would be $1,323 dollars more than the just-completed school year.

The regentss for Oklahoma State University just approved a 10% tuition hike last week.
