It may soon cost more to attend classes at NC Central University.

The school's board of trustees approved an increase Friday. If the UNC Board of Governors approves the increases, it will cost an extra $192 per year for undergrad students and $242 per year more for graduate students beginning in the 2012-13 academic year.

"Any increase in tuition and fees is too much for low-wealth students to have to pay," Chancellor Charlie Nelms said. "We have attempted to balance our commitment to access, affordability and quality. Low cost but poor quality is not a bargain for anyone."

In a separate vote, the board approved an additional increase. That comes to an extra $100 a year per in-state student.
