The cost of tuition is going up at all 17 campuses of the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities system.The Board of Regents for Higher Education on Tuesday approved the increases.

Plans call for a 5 percent increase at the four state universities, not including the University of Connecticut, boosting tuition to more than  $10,000. Community college tuition will increase 3.5 percent to nearly $4,200, and tuition at Charter Oak State College will increase 4 percent to more than $9,000.

The president of the state college and university system, Mark Ojakian, says the increases are needed partially because of an expected $26 million cut in state funding to the system.
