BATON ROUGE- With legislative approval out of the way, a $13.8 million increase in tuition at LSU System campuses is up for consideration this week by the LSU Board of Supervisors.

LSU says the hikes to be considered Friday afternoon range from a $50 per semester hike at LSU Alexandria to a $144 increase at LSU Baton Rouge and a $387 boost for medical students at the LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans.

Votes on more college tuition increases, backed by Gov. Bobby Jindal, are expected at this year's legislative session.
