LAS VEGAS, N.M. (AP) - Regents at New Mexico Highlands University have voted in favor of a tuition increase.

The Las Vegas Optic reports (http://bit.ly/QFih5q) this marks the second straight year that regents have accepted the administation’s recommendation and signed off on a double-digit tuition increase.

With the higher tuition rates, full-time undergraduate resident students will end up paying nearly $500 more a year. That’s a 12.5 percent increase over current rates.

Last year’s increase for full-time resident students was 14.2 percent.

Regent Jesus Lopez says regents were concerned about having to raise tuition but the increase was unavoidable.
