PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Tuition at Rhode Island’s three public colleges would rise for the first time in three years under a plan that’s been sent to the Board of Education for approval.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/11GrTmm ) that the hike was included in a budget plan unanimously approved by the Council on Postsecondary Education on Wednesday.

Under the budget, tuition would rise at the University of Rhode Island, Rhode Island College and the Community College of Rhode Island.

URI students would pay 2.8 percent more annually. Tuition at RIC and CCRI would rise between 7.8 percent and 8.6 percent.
