[July 25, 2009]  NORMAL (AP) -- Illinois State University plans to ask its board of trustees to increase tuition and fees 7.6 percent for new students this fall.

DonutsIf trustees approve the proposal, new in-state students would pay $276 per credit hour. Undergraduates who began at ISU in the 2008-2009 school year pay $256 per credit hour. New students would also pay $3.90 more per credit hour in fees, or $64.30, if the board OKs the proposed increases.

Only new students would be affected by the proposed new tuition and fees because rates are set each summer for incoming students and remain the same over their four years.

Earlier this year, Illinois State President Al Bowman told state lawmakers the range of the tuition increase could be anywhere from zero to 9.9 percent.
