FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -- Tuition at Colorado State University will increase by 5 percent for in-state students next school year.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports the university Board of Governors approved the higher charges Friday.

An in-state student taking 12 credit-hours will pay about $7,870, up $374.

An out-of-state student taking the same load will pay about $24,000, an increase of 3 percent.

A university fact book says tuition for in-state undergraduate students has risen 155 percent in the past 10 years.

CSU says its latest increase is smaller than those proposed by Michigan State; the University of California, Davis; Washington State and the University of Illinois.

The University of Colorado Boulder will charge about $9,000 for full-time, in-state undergraduate tuition next year.
