Laramie, WY (AP) - University of Wyoming trustees are considering increases in tuition and fees at the state's only four-year, public university.
Trustees are meeting Thursday and Friday on the Laramie campus.

The trustees have been looking at a proposal to increase tuition by 4 percent in the 2014-15 academic year. If approved, the increase would bring in about another $2 million a year and would mean an increase of $120 for full-time resident students.

In addition, trustees are considering a $91 increase in student fees for a total tuition and fee increase of $211 next year.

Besides tuition and fees, trustees are expected to discuss how to distribute state funding for employee pay raises.
