— Oklahoma State University's in-state undergraduates won't see an increase in tuition and fees when they return to campus in the fall.

The Board of Regents for OSU and the A&M Colleges approved the university's budget proposal at a meeting Friday at OSU-Tulsa. That proposal included no increase in tuition and fees for in-state undergraduates.

The budget included a 2.9 percent increase in tuition and fees for nonresident undergraduates.

OSU President Burns Hargis said enrollment increases and private donations allowed the university to hold in-state tuition constant for the first time in four years.

The last time OSU students saw tuition hold steady was during the 2009-10 academic year, when the state higher education system saw a 3 percent increase in funding. That increase was driven in part by the influx of $69 million in federal economic stimulus money.

While tuition and fees won't increase for in-state undergraduate students, other groups of students in the OSU family of schools will see increases as high as 4.9 percent.

In-state graduate students will see a 1.8 percent increase in tuition and fees and nonresident graduate students a 3 percent increase. In-state students at the OSU College of Veterinary Health Sciences will see a 4.5 percent increase and nonresident veterinary students a 4.8 percent increase.

In-state and nonresident students at OSU-Oklahoma City will see no tuition increase. Students in lower-division courses at OSU Institute of Technology will see no increase. In-state students in OSUIT upper-division courses will see a 4 percent increase, while nonresident students will see a 4.9 percent increase.
