COLUMBIA, Tennessee — The Tennessee Board of Regents has approved only small tuition hikes for the 2015-2016 school year.

A unanimous vote at the Regents' Friday meeting in Columbia raises tuition 3.4 percent at Tennessee's community colleges and 4 percent at the Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology.

At the six Board of Regents universities, tuition increases vary as follows:

—Austin Peay State University: 2.4 percent

—East Tennessee State University: 3 percent

—Middle Tennessee State University: 3.1 percent

—Tennessee State University: 2.8 percent

—Tennessee Tech University: 10.9 percent

—University of Memphis: 3.7 percent

Tuition is charged by the credit hour, but students also pay a set of mandatory fees for things like athletics and student health services.

Tennessee Tech is reducing its mandatory fees this fall. Fees at the other universities are increasing.
