AUSTIN, Texas -- Regents for the Texas A&M and University of Texas systems are poised to raise tuition rates at most campuses starting next fall.

The University of Texas System is considering increasing rates at all nine of its campuses over the next two years.

The main Texas campus in Austin would see bumps up to 3.6 percent each year for undergraduate students, raising about $25.7 million. President Bill Powers has said the money will be used to improve academic advising and other programs to help students graduate in four years.

Rates at Texas A&M's main campus in College Station would not go up. But undergraduate rates at the system's other 10 campuses would increase about $10 per credit hour.

Texas regents meet Wednesday and Thursday. Texas A&M regents meet Thursday and Friday.
