CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- The University System of New Hampshire is holding off on setting in-state tuition rates for the next academic year while it waits to see what kind of state funding it gets.

The system's Board of Trustees wants state support to be restored to 2010 levels, or $100 million per year. In exchange, it would freeze tuition for in-state students and significantly increase financial aid.

The USNH board has approved tuition rates for out-of-state students. Rates are going up 1 percent at the University of New Hampshire, 2.8 percent at Keene State College, 3 percent at Plymouth State University and 3.4 percent at Granite State College.
