    Texas A&M President, Dr. R. Bowen Loftin.

    Texas A&M officials are proposing an almost 4 percent tuition hike for the upcoming school year.

    The Eagle newspaper reports that school President R. Bowen Loftin points to lower state funding and higher student enrollment as reasons for an increase.

    If the A&M System Board of Regents approves the 3.95 percent hike, tuition for in-state students would rise by $176 to $4,643 per semester. Out-of-state tuition would go up $817 to $24,626.

    The school did not increase tuition rates last year.

    The board of regents is scheduled to decide on tuition in May.
