CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) — North Carolina’s public university system is about to do without tuition increases next year for undergraduates who live in the state, though out-of-state students would see higher costs.

The University of North Carolina’s governing board has scheduled a vote Friday on plans to hold tuition costs steady for state residents. Fees would rise by an average of 4 percent, some of the lowest in five years.

The state Legislature ordered tuition increases for out-of-state students of 12 percent next year at campuses in Chapel Hill, Wilmington, Greensboro, and Winston-Salem. Out-of-state tuition will rise 6 percent at most other campuses.

Lawmakers did not require higher tuition for non-resident undergraduates at UNC-Charlotte and North Carolina State University. N.C. State is asking for a 9 percent increase, Charlotte does not want an increase.
