TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) --

The Board of Governors has adopted a regulation letting Florida's universities seek the panel's permission to charge students a flat tuition rate regardless of how many classes they take.

The proposal was approved Thursday during a meeting at the
University of Florida in Gainesville.

The block tuition concept has drawn opposition because it would
increase costs for students who take less than a full load.
The University of Florida is considering it as a way to
encourage students to get their degrees sooner. Other schools have
shown little interest. The board will consider proposals at its
February meeting.

The board also agreed in January to consider a regulation that
would allow higher tuition for certain graduate programs.
