Several schools, including UNC-Greensboro and UNC-Pembroke, have petitioned the board for tuition increases -- some to fund faculty salary increases and student financial aid.
BOG member John Sanders said the proposals are beginning to come in, but the board will not begin to review them until next month.
"I have no impression as to how the board is leaning," he said.
Sanders added that he had briefly reviewed several proposals from the schools but would not comment on the content.
Sanders, who voted against last year's increases, said he would probably vote no again unless he was greatly impressed by the proposals.
"Unless (the institutions) present a better case than the institutions did last year, I would be opposed to (tuition increases)," he said.
But BOG member J. Addison Bell, who supported last year's tuition increases, said the issue of faculty salaries is one that will not go away.
"We're going to lose the good faculty we've got (if we don't do something)," Bell said.
UNC Association of Student Governments President Andrew Payne said many in ASG favor tuition hikes.
