The Associated Press - Tuition at Hawai'i's public university system will go up starting next year under a plan approved last week.
The University of Hawai'i Board of Regents voted 9-3 to approve increases officials unveiled in August. Full-time students at the flagship Manoa campus will see a tuition increase of 35 percent over the next five years. For the 2012-13 school year, resident undergraduate tuition will increase $132 per semester at Manoa, $120 for UH-Hilo and $60 at community colleges. UH-West O'ahu's tuition would go up $228 per semester in the first year because the new campus faces startup costs that more established campuses do not have, according to university officials.
Under the plan, tuition at Manoa next year will go from $8,400 to $8,664. Tuition at UH-Hilo will go from $5,640 to $5,880. By the 2016-17 school year, resident undergraduate tuition will be $11,376 at UH-Manoa and $7,656 at UH-Hilo.
