Tuition going up on University of Alabama campuses

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Tuition is going up for students at all three campuses of the University of Alabama System.
The Tuscaloosa News reported that the system's board of trustees, meeting in Mobile, on Friday raised tuition for in-state students at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa by 8.9% from what they paid during the past year. The tuition was raised about $700 for two semesters to $8,600 to attend classes for the coming school year.
For non-Alabama residents tuition increased 6.8% to $21,900 for two semesters.
The trustees increased tuition by 8% at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and 7.9% at the University of Alabama at Birmingham for state residents.
Trustees blamed the tuition hikes on state funding cuts, the economic downturn and loss of federal stimulus money.
