— The University of North Carolina Board fo Trustees on Thursday unanimously approved tuition increases for all graduate students and out-of-state undergraduates on the Chapel Hill campus.

Tuition will go up by $1,250 a year for undergraduates who aren't North Carolina residents, $400 for resident graduate students and $800 for out-of-state graduate students.

Tuition this academic year for full-time, out-of-state undergraduates is $19,353. In-state students are charged $3,705.

Chancellor James Moeser called for the increases, which he said were relatively modest, to cover the rising cost of educating students.

The Board of Trustees rejected Moeser's proposal for a $400 increase for in-state undergraduates.
