DENTON (AP) – Students at the University of North Texas will pay more for classes this fall.

University of North Texas regents on Monday approved a 2.8 percent increase in tuition and fees, expected to generate $6.3 million.

The Denton Record-Chronicle reported Tuesday that the latest tuition hike at UNT, with spring enrollment topping 34,000, will join a 3.9 percent increase approved last year.

A student taking 15 credit hours in a semester will pay nearly $4,400 on average.

Texas lawmakers are facing a projected $15 billion budget shortfall for the next two-year period, which could impact funding for public education.

UNT regents also approved a $450,000 increase in the budget for a $79 million football stadium, scheduled to open this fall at the flagship Denton campus, to build two additional entrances.
