OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma higher education regents have approved proposed tuition and mandatory fee increases at 25 state colleges and universities.

The regents voted 9-0 Thursday to approve the proposals from the schools for the 2010-11 school year. The tuition increases range from 3.2 percent at Western Oklahoma State College in Altus to 5.5 percent at 13 schools.

Oklahoma State University's rates will rise by 4.4 percent and University of Oklahoma students will see a 4.5 percent hike.

The average in-state undergraduate at OU or OSU now will pay $6,781 in tuition and mandatory fees for a standard course load of 30 credit hours over two semesters. That's about $288 more than during the 2009-10 school year.

Students at the state's 11 regional schools will pay an average of $4,394 while community college students will pay an average of $2,775.
