The board that governs the three state universities today (Tuesday) approved an increase in tuition and fees for the schools. The Board of Regents made the unanimous vote during a telephone conference call that lasted just 14 minutes.
Under the plan Iowa State University students from the state will pay four percent more or 226 dollars. Out-of-state students will pay 630 dollars more at I-S-U. The cost of attending the University of Iowa in Iowa City will jump four-point-five percent or 253 dollars for in-state students. Non-resident students at the U-of-I will pay one-thousand-91 dollars more. The students at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls will see the biggest increase. The cost for in-state students at U-N-I will go up 310 dollars, and for non-residents it’ll cost about 614 more dollars. T
The student body presidents at each of the schools back the increase earlier this year as reasonable. The increase is expected to generate nine-point-one million dollars.
