LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The University of Nebraska president is proposing tuition increases for the next two school years after two years of tuition freezes for resident students.

The university said in a news release Friday that President Hank Bounds’ proposed budget includes tuition increases of 1.75 percent for 2015-16 and 2.5 percent for 2016-17. If approved by the Board of Regents at its June 12 meeting, most Nebraska students would pay, on average, about $3.50 more per credit hour this coming school year and an additional $5 per credit hour the next school year.

The tuition freezes resulted from a 2012 deal with the Nebraska Legislature that provided a 4 percent increase in state appropriations in exchange for keeping tuition rates flat for Nebraska students.
