CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) — Tuition at North Carolina’s public universities appear to be headed higher next fall, with undergraduates at some campuses seeing double-digit jumps for in-state rates.

The budget committee for the University of North Carolina Board of Governors on Thursday backed the tuition increases as expected. A final vote by the board is expected Friday.

Most of the 16 university campuses plan to raise tuition by the 6.5 percent maximum set by the governing board.

That will mean an extra $313 on top of this year’s undergraduate tuition of $4,800 at UNC-Chapel Hill, and an extra $170 for the North Carolina A&T State University undergraduate now paying $2,600.

Some campuses decided to spread out special increases that kicked in last year, meaning double-digit increases this fall.
