The Mississippi College Board's agenda this week features a discussion of a possible tuition increase at the eight universities, which would be the 12th in 13 years if adopted.

Officials say with budget talks ongoing at the state Capitol, the College Board may not reach a decision this week.

Higher education funding was reduced about 5 percent this fiscal year because of waning state revenues.

Senate Universities and Colleges Committee Chairman Doug Davis said lawmakers have proposed funding the university system at about the same level as the current year.

Last year marked the first time tuition topped $5,000 for in-state students.
