Alabama's largest universities are considering tuition hikes.

Tuition would rise 9.4 percent for the typical undergraduate at the University of Alabama, UAB and UAH under a plan being considered by the UA System trustees.

Rates for the typical student at Auburn University would increase 6.1 percent under a plan being considered there.

Such increases would bring the cost of a semester's worth of undergraduate tuition for an Alabama resident taking 15 hours of classes at UA to $3,500.

Tuition for a similar student would total $3,148 at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, $3,255 at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and $3,120 at Auburn University.
