Jackson, Miss.

Tuition is likely to be headed up at five of Mississippi's eight public universities.

The College Board gave preliminary approval to tuition plans for the next two academic years Thursday. The board must vote a second time before the plan becomes final.

Average in-state tuition and fees would rise 2.8 percent to $6,509 in fall 2014. In 2015, average tuition would rise 3 percent to $6,703.

The plans would push tuition above $7,000 a year at the University of Mississippi, Mississippi State University and the University of Southern Mississippi.

Delta State University, Mississippi Valley State University and Mississippi University for Women plan no increases over the next two years.

Alcorn State University and Jackson State University would also raise tuition, but by smaller percentages than Ole Miss and MSU.
