The University of Arkansas System has proposed tuition increases.

Tuition and mandatory fees would be $8,209, a 5 percent increase, for the average undergraduate student taking 30 credit hours during the 2014-15 academic year at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.

University of Arkansas at Little Rock undergraduates carrying 30 credit hours would be charged $7,959, a 4.7 percent increase. The largest percentage increase would be at the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith, where an undergraduate taking 30 credit hours would pay $5,962, a 6 percent increase.

University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff students face the smallest percentage increase: 3.5 percent. Their undergraduate rate would be $5,956 if they take 30 credit hours. University of Arkansas at Monticello students would pay $6,082, a 5 percent increase.

The University of Arkansas board of trustees meets Wednesday and Thursday in Monticello. If the board approves the new rates and university budgets, faculty at each campus would receive a minimum 2 percent merit raise.

Flooding sets off landslides across Balkans

Volunteers use a rubber boat to evacuate residents from a flooded area in Obrenovac, some 30 kilometers (18 miles) southwest of Belgrade, Serbia, Sunday, May 18, 2014. In Serbia, more than 20,000 people have been forced from their homes. Officials there fear more flooding later Sunday as floodwaters travel down the Sava and reach the country. Serbian officials said that the flood wave might be lower than initially expected, because the river broke barriers upstream in Croatia and Bosnia. Experts said they expect Sava floodwaters to rise for two more days, then subside. (AP Photo/Darko Vojinovic)
