LAS VEGAS, N.M. (AP) - Regents for New Mexico Highlands University have voted for steep double-digit tuition hikes.

The Las Vegas Optic reports (https://goo.gl/ZxT7VH) that regent voted last week to increase the annual cost of attending Highlands by between $582 and $976. Regents also signed off on a new $150 per year student fee to improve campus life for students.

The 12.5 percent increase means tuition and fees for a full-time undergraduate who is a New Mexico resident will range from $4,800 a year to $5,550.

Highlands President Sam Minner says the tuition increase was not an easy decision.

Minner says the new student fees will fund the launch of a new outdoor experience program.
