OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma State University students will pay 7 percent more for tuition and mandatory fees for the next academic year.

The Oklahoman reports that the Board of Regents for the university and the A&M Colleges approved the increase and Oklahoma State’s fiscal year 2017 budget on Friday.

The state appropriation to higher education was decreased by 15.9 percent for the fiscal year starting July 1. The university will receive $37 million less than it received this year.

The university’s president says the increase in tuition and fees will cover half of the loss.

The Board of Regents also approved budgets and tuition increases for Connors State College, Langston University, Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College and Oklahoma Panhandle State University.

Panhandle State sought the smallest tuition and fees increase at 3.7 percent.
