TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) – University of Alabama trustees are set to consider a proposal that could increase tuition by nearly 3 percent for the 2013-14 academic year.

The Tuscaloosa News reports that the board of trustees will consider raising tuition for each of the system’s three campuses at its meeting Friday.

If approved, it would be the sixth straight year of tuition increases at UA’s main campus in Tuscaloosa, the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the University of Alabama in Huntsville. University administrators and board members have cited cuts in state funding when raising tuition in recent years.

Tuition for full-time undergraduate and graduate students who attend the main campus would increase $125 per semester under the proposal being considered. Tuition for full-time students from out of state would increase $500 per semester.
