Iowa Board Of Regents Approves Tuition Increases

(Urbandale, IA) — The Iowa Board of Regents has approved a three-and-a-half percent tuition hike for the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and the University of Northern Iowa. Student government representatives said they don’t want tuition to increase, but they agree the increase is necessary due to inflation and a zero percent increase in state funding. The regents had asked for a 32 million dollar increase from state lawmakers, but the appropriation remained the same. Students will pay about 300 dollars more per year, starting this fall. The board also approved a plan for a new School of Health and Human Sciences at the University of Northern Iowa.
