UCA board to consider 3 percent tuition increase

CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - The University of Central Arkansas' Board of Trustees is scheduled to consider raising student tuition by three percent.

The board is to meet Friday at UCA in Conway.

The proposal calls for an increase in graduate student tuition from $235.96 per credit hour to $243.04. Undergraduate tuition would rise from $191.50 per hour to $197.25.

UCA officials say the increase will be used to help provide a 2 percent salary increase for faculty and staff.
