Board members for the state's 16 public colleges have approved raising tuition, starting next school year.
Average tuition and fees at the state's four universities will jump 3.8 percent or an average of $315 for students who commute, according to the Hartford Courant, to an average of $8,556. For Connecticut students who live at the university, the increase is 3.7 percent, pushing tuition and fees up by $676.
At the state's 12 community colleges, tuition and fees will go up 3.1 percent, or $108, to $3,598.
Only the two student representatives on the Board of Regents voted against the increases.
