Tuition and fees will increase for undergraduate and graduate students at Oklahoma State University under the new budget approved Friday by the Oklahoma A&M Board of Regents.

The nearly $1.1 billion budget includes $238.5 million in state appropriations, a 1.28 percent increase in state funding from fiscal year 2012. The budget must be approved by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, and, if approved, will take effect July 1.

Tuition and mandatory fees for in-state undergraduate students will rise 2.8 percent, about $200 a year for full-time students taking 30 hours. Currently, tuition is about $7,400 a year for full-time, in-state undergrads, OSU said. Tuition for in-state graduate students will go up 6.5 percent, about $400 a year.
