The board that governs the three state-supported universities will consider a tuition increase at its meeting next week. The Board of Regents will consider raising tuition at the University of Iowa, Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa for in-state students by 3.75% next year.
The proposal released by the board office shows the University of Iowa students would see a total increase of 3.75% in fees and tuition. Iowa State University is proposing no increase in fees, so their overall cost to students would go up 3.2%. The University of Northern Iowa is asking for a fee increase that would combine with the tuition increase to bring the cost up by 3.88%.
The U-I is requesting a 4.7% increase in out-of-state tuition, while I.S.U. wants a 2.48% increase and U.N.I. 3.82%. The regents say the proposed increases could change depending on the funding the schools receive from the legislature. The board will hear the proposals for the first time next week during their meeting on the U.N.I. campus in Cedar Falls.
