It can, usually such things are covered in your lease and generally there is some protection in how much it can go up. Some states have laws regarding rent increase.

Sometimes landlords will up the price if they get a lot of application for tenants. If you and the landlord haven't both signed the lease agreement then its still legal for changes to be made. Leases can also be amended, though usually this requires the tenant's agreement.
