    A UNT dorm is the only one in Texas to receive an Energy Star rating.

    Students at the University of North Texas will pay more this fall.

    University of North Texas regents on Monday approved a 2.8 percent increase in tuition and fees, expected to generate $6.3 million.

    The latest tuition hike at UNT, with spring enrollment topping 34,000, will join a 3.9 percent increase approved last year. A student taking 15 credit hours per semester will pay nearly $4,400 on average.

    President V. Lane Rawlins says enrollment has increased 34 percent since 2000.

    Texas lawmakers face a projected $15 billion budget shortfall for the next two-year period, which could impact funding for public education.

    UNT regents also approved a $450,000 increase in the budget for a $79 million football stadium, scheduled to open this fall at the flagship Denton campus, for two additional entrances.
