RENO, Nev. (AP) — The Nevada Board of Regents has voted to raise tuition at college and universities statewide.

Regents voted 7-6 on Friday to implement the fee hike, which will begin in Fall 2015.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports undergraduate fees at most universities and community colleges will rise 4 percent each year for four years. Graduate fees will rise 2 percent each year for four years.

The exception is Nevada State College, where undergraduate fees will rise 2.5 percent in the first year and 3.5 percent for the next three years.

About 30 students attended the meeting in Reno and in satellite locations in Las Vegas. Most opposed the hike, saying it would pose a financial hardship, while some supported it, saying it would help improve their schools.
