GREAT FALLS - The Board of Regents appears divided over whether a college tuition increase is needed for the next two years.

University officials have proposed an increase - while Gov. Brian Schweitzer is firmly opposed to any increases.

The seven-member Board of Regents is looking at whether college costs must increase to forestall layoffs and cuts in student services. The board, which is meeting in Great Falls, is likely to vote on the matter Friday morning.

University officials have said they cannot maintain existing programs and services without a tuition rise.

Three regents said Thursday morning that they would consider voting for a tuition increase. Three other regents spoke against any increases - while one remains undecided.
