The Idaho State Board of Education has approved tuition increases.

The board on Wednesday approved an increase of 4 percent at the University of Idaho and Boise State University.

Idaho State University will see a 3.5 percent increase and Lewis-Clark State College a 2 percent increase.

The increases mean full-time students at the University of Idaho will pay $6,784 a year and Boise State students will pay $6,640.

Idaho State University tuition rises to $6,566, while tuition at Lewis-Clark State College jumps to $5,900.

Boise State had asked for a 6.1 percent increase, while UI had asked for a 4.7 increase.

But the board said it wanted to hold increases to no more than 4 percent.
