Regents Approve CU Tuition Hike

By  | 

Boulder, Colo. (AP) University of Colorado Board of Regents have approved a tuition hike of nearly 15 percent for most students at the Boulder campus next year.

Most in-state students on the Boulder campus will pay $665 more in tuition next year, though their total bills will be affected by the number of credit hours they take, family incomes and their degree tracks.

Regent Tom Lucero was the lone dissenter, saying the university has a “moral obligation” to keep higher education affordable for Colorado families.

The state requires that tuition increases for financially needy students be capped at five percent. University budget officials project the cap will cover about 40 percent of in-state students at the Boulder campus.
