  • NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — The University of Oklahoma plans to turn to flat-rate tuition and mandatory fees for full-time undergraduate students carrying between 12 and 21 credit hours per semester.
     
    The Norman Transcript reports (http://bit.ly/199U5PR ) Friday that, pending approval by the OU Board of Regents and the State Regents for Higher Education, flat-rate tuition and mandatory fees would go into effect in fall 2013.
     
    The rate is to be based on OU's current 15-credit hour rate for tuition and mandatory fees. Under the flat-rate plan, students could enroll in up to 21 hours and pay for only 15.
     
    The Transcript says half of the schools in the Big 12 already have flat-rate tuition.
     
    University President David Boren also said Thursday that the school will not raise in-state tuition this year.
