CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) -- Tuition and fees will cost more at Southern Illinois University.
WSIU radio reports on Thursday that the school's board of trustees has approved a 6.9 percent increase in tuition for the next academic year. University president Glenn Poshard says the increase is 3 percent less than was first proposed.
Poshard says the school will have to continue budget management practices.
The tuition increase will apply to incoming students and the fee increase will apply to all students.
