ASU trustees to decide on tuition rates

NEWPORT, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas State University trustees are to decide on tuition and fees for the coming academic year.

The board meets at 10 a.m. Thursday in Jonesboro.

The panel is also to decide on the budget for the 2013-2014 school year.

The agenda also lists a vote on whether to allow concealed handguns to be carried by faculty and staff. A law passed by the Legislature allows university boards to vote on whether to allow weapons on campus. So far, all state college boards that have voted on the measure have decided against allowing the guns on campus.
