LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Tuition will be going up this fall at Chadron, Peru and Wayne state colleges in Nebraska.

The system's board of trustees Friday approved raising the tuition rate $12 an hour, making the undergraduate resident rate $172 per credit hour at each college.

The system had requested $54.9 million in state support for the coming year, $2.8 million more than the $52.1 million finally approved. Officials say closing the gap meant raising tuition and cutting some expenses.

The system serves more than 9,000 students.
