MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Students at Alabama State University are about to have to dig deeper into their pockets after a steep tuition increase.

University officials confirm the ASU Board of Trustees has approved an increase of nearly 22 percent.

That will make tuition costs go up by more than $500 per semester.

WSFA 12 News is working on reaction to the board's decision and will have more information as it becomes available.
