UH planning tuition hike

HONOLULU — The University of Hawai‘i Board of Regents will decide this fall whether to increase tuition costs — and by how much. The price hikes would help fill an $86 million hole in the university’s operating budget.

Regents on Thursday learned about the proposed tuition schedule that would raise prices at every campus. The new price for one full-time semester at UH Manoa would be $4,332. The increases would be:

• $132 at UH Manoa

• $120 at UH Hilo

• $60 at the community colleges

• $228 for UH West Oahu, which has to deal with start-up costs
