Langston University students can expect to see a few new items on their student bills when they return to campus in the fall.
The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education approved a round of tuition and fee increases at state colleges and universities at a meeting Thursday.
Langston undergraduate students will see the largest increase in tuition and mandatory fees, with a price hike of nearly $393 for 30 credit hours. That represents a 9.1 percent increase over the previous fiscal year.
That increase is driven by a $240, or 19.1 percent, uptick in mandatory fees over last year. According to Langston's budget proposal, that increase includes two new fees: a career services fee and a counseling fee. Both fees come to $60 for students carrying 30 credit hours.
The university's academic records fee tripled, climbing from $30 to $90 for 30 credit hours. Langston's student activity fee climbed $60 for 30 credit hours, increasing from $225 to $285.
Students at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma will see the second-largest increase. Regents approved a 7.2 percent increase in tuition and fees for in-state undergraduates at USAO. That increase is driven by a 9.2 percent increase in undergraduate in-state tuition. USAO students won't see an increase in mandatory fees.
