COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - University of Colorado budget officials are proposing a plan that would amount to an 8.7 percent increase in tuition next fall for most in-state students on the Boulder campus, bringing their annual rates to $8,760.

The Daily Camera reports CU finance chief Todd Saliman unveiled the tuition proposal Thursday at the regents' meeting in Colorado Springs. The Board of Regents isn't expected to vote on it until the spring.

The tuition plan would change how students are charged. Currently full-time students pay for 11.25 credit hours a semester at $358 per hour, yet they can take up to 18 credits, or sometimes even more with campus approval. University officials are now proposing charging full-time students for 12 credit hours at $365 per credit hour.
