Non-resident students will pay $737 more. For graduate students, tuition for residents will go up $334 per semester, for metro residents $469 and for non-residents $806.

University officials say their budget projects $42.7 million from the state and almost $62 million from net tuition and fees. Residence hall and meal plan rates won’t increase.
