Nevada Regents Consider Tuition Increase

RENO, Nev. (AP) - Nevada regents will consider a committee recommendation this week to increase tuition at the state's two universities, four community colleges and the state college.

Undergraduate students would pay 5 percent more per credit. Graduate students would see a 10 percent increase.

Regents meet Thursday and Friday in Carson City.

University of Nevada, Reno President Milton Glick says the additional money would provide more financial aid for students and improve the quality of education with more senior faculty and class availability.
