NORMAN, Okla. –   It’ll soon cost more to attend the University of Oklahoma.

The University of Oklahoma Board of Regents has approved a nearly five percent tuition and fees increase.

The  new fees will be in effect starting next year.

Under the new plan, a credit hour at OU will now cost $137, while out-of-state students will pay $425 per credit hour.

A report also shows the regents approved an $8 million raise for university employees.

Those raises are said to be going to employees who make less than $50,000.
