ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) _ The University of Minnesota will raise tuition at its
Twin Cities campus this fall.

The university's board voted Tuesday to approve university President Eric Kaler's
recommended budget, which will raise tuition by 2 percent for Minnesota
residents and 12.5 percent for nonresidents at the Twin Cities campus.

Kaler says the 2 percent rate is a compromise from the 3 percent rate hike he
had originally suggested.

Nonresidents already enrolled at the Twin Cities campus will see a tuition
increase of 5.5 percent.

Undergraduates at the university's four other campuses will have 1 percent
tuition increases, though Duluth nonresidents will see their rate climb 5.5

The budget also includes a 2 percent wage increase for all employee groups.
