Tuition and fees at the University of Texas at Austin would increase as much as 9.4 percent this fall under a plan the Board of Regents will consider Tuesday.
The proposal would increase the cost for an in-state undergraduate to attend the flagship campus by $329 a semester to $3,815. The plan also includes an increase of less than 1 percent starting in fall 2007.
The plan comes on the heels of an 8.9 percent increase at Texas A&M. On Friday, regents approved a plan that raises tuition and fees at the College Station campus to $3,483 a semester for in-state undergraduates, up from $3,199.
