LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees has approved raising tuition, fees and room and board charges.

The board voted Friday to raise tuition for all students by 5 percent in the 2014-15 academic year. The increase amounts to $5 per credit hour for resident undergraduates and $22 per credit hour for nonresidents. Additionally, the trustees approved a $91 annual increase in student fees.

The total bill for tuition and fees for full-time resident undergraduate students will rise from $4,404 to $4,646 in the coming academic year.

The tuition increase is expected to raise about $2.5 million and will be used for things like UW employee salaries, classroom improvements, equipment and student retention.

The room and board increases will cover higher costs for utilities, food and health insurance.
