    UMass board OK’s 4.9% fee hike

    The University of Massachusetts Board of Trustees approved a 4.9 percent increase in student fees Wednesday, giving its emphatic blessing to a proposal Governor Deval Patrick had slammed the day before in a last-minute letter and phone call to the president of UMass, Robert Caret.

    The action, in a 15-2 vote, will raise fees for in-state students by about $580, bringing annual tuition and fees to $12,481.
