U of So. Alabama considers tuition increase

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - University of South Alabama trustees could approve a tuition increase by at least 8 percent for the coming school year.

A board of trustees panel met Wednesday and recommended that undergraduate tuition move from $5,512 to $5,962, based on 30 undergraduate hours, for 2009-2010.

In-state graduate students would pay $6,334 next fall, up 10.5 percent from $5,758.

USA's medical students would pay $19,655, an increase of $1,650, or 9.2 percent.

University fees would not increase, according to the proposal before the board meeting Thursday morning in Mobile.

The university has about 13,400 students.

Officials cited state budget cuts for the tuition increase.
