HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The Alabama A&M University Board of Trustees voted to raise tuition by six percent on Friday morning.

For students, that means paying an extra $500 a year.

Alabama A&M President, Doctor Andrew Hugine Junior, said the increase is needed because of the growth of the school's operational expenses.

Three other Alabama universities will also increase tuition in the fall. 

The University of North Alabama will increase tuition by 4.5 percent. Athens State University is increasing theirs by 7 percent.

At the University of Alabama and at UAB, tuition will go up $180 per semester.
