(Norman-AP) -- University of Oklahoma President David Boren says another tuition increase could face students soon.

Boren says the need to raise pay for OU faculty and staff will be met by tuition and fee increases unless the state provides the funding for the raises.

He says funding will have to be increased by $100-million to prevent a tuition hike.

Boren says he doesn't know how much the tuition increase will be, but says it will be less than 10%. Students saw a 33% increase in tuition beginning this semester.
