[June 26, 2009]  CHICAGO (AP) -- University of Illinois officials have voted to raise tuition for freshmen next fall by about 2.6 percent on each of its three campuses.

The university trustees' three-member executive committee voted Thursday to increase in-state tuition at the school's flagship campus in Urbana-Champaign to $9,484 a year. Tuition will increase to $8,342 a year at the Chicago campus and $7,402.50 a year at the Springfield campus.

Under Illinois law, incoming freshmen will pay those rates for the next four years. Rates for current students won't increase.

The committee decided against a 4 percent increase that had been recommended by university administrators.
