AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – The University of Texas System’s Board of Regents is expected to vote this week on a plan to avoid tuition increases for in-state students.

The Austin-American Statesman reports the plan would keep tuition flat at the Austin flagship campus and eight others. The campuses had negotiated in-state tuition increases with system officials, but regents voted against them after Gov. Rick Perry called for a tuition freeze.

The increase would have been 2.1 percent, or $104 a semester, at UT-Austin.

The new plan will use money from the permanent university endowment to offset costs. The state Constitution only allows money from the fund to be used for operations at the Austin campus and UT System administration, so 48 audit employees at the campuses will become UT System employees instead.

Regents are expected to approve the plan Thursday
