REXBURG, Idaho ?— Brigham Young University-Idaho officials have approved a 2.88 percent, or $50, tuition increase for the 2012-13 school year, which will take effect this fall.

Tuition will change to $1,785 per semester for students who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and $3,570 for students of other faiths.
