DENVER — Tuition at all four University of Colorado campuses will be going up for the 2012-2013 school year.

The Board of Regents approved tuition increases Thursday, saying they’re needed because of continued reductions in state funding for higher education.

The tuition amounts listed reflect typical arts and sciences programs for full-time resident undergraduate students:
– University of Colorado Boulder: 5-percent increase to $8,056
– University of Colorado Colorado Springs: 4.9-percent increase to $7,050
– University of Colorado Denver: 0.8-percent increase
– University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus: Credit hour cost for nursing undergraduate students will rise by 2.4 percent; the dollar amount varies widely based on student debt and peer averages comparisons.

Approximately 60,000 students are pursuing degrees with the CU system.
