The presidents of Iowa, Iowa State and U-N-I want students to pay higher tuition for the second semester of the next academic year. The leaders of the three public universities are asking the state Board of Regents to impose a three percent hike in the tuition rate for the second semester. If approved, undergraduates who are from Iowa would pay 74-dollars more in tuition. University officials asked the Iowa Legislature for an additional 40 million dollars and got 30 million. The three percent boost in tuition would raise about five-million, according to estimates. The university presidents say they need the extra five million to pay and keep faculty and staff. U-N-I’s president says his institution also needs a 20-dollar increase in the computer fee students pay. The Board of Regents will vote on the proposals during their July 14th meeting in Ames. Tuition at Iowa, Iowa State and U-N-I for this fall’s semester is set to rise four percent under a proposal approved in December by the Board of Regents.
