PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Tuition is set to increase at Rhode Island’s four-year public colleges.

WPRI-TV reports the state Council on Postsecondary Education voted last week to increase tuition at the University of Rhode Island and Rhode Island College next fall.

Costs at URI will increase by $346 to a total of $14,138 for in-state students. Out-of-state students will pay an additional $820, bringing costs to $30,862.

In-state students at RIC will pay $153 more for a total of $8,929 in tuition and fees. The tuition increase will have out-of-state students paying $403 more, bringing the total cost to $21,692.

Officials estimate the increase will bring in $2.8 million in revenue for the schools.

Tuition will remain the same at the Community College of Rhode Island.
