Iowa Regents to Finalize 2nd Tuition Freeze Plan
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Plans to freeze tuition rates for undergraduates while cutting them for out-of-state law students are up for approval by the Iowa Board of Regents.
The regents meet Wednesday on a conference call.
After months of discussion, they're expected to formally approve a plan to freeze tuition rates for resident undergraduate students at Iowa's three public universities for the second straight year. The freeze is contingent on the schools receiving a 4 percent general funding increase from lawmakers next year. Without it, the regents warn they may have to approve a hike later.
Gov. Terry Branstad has said he'd love to see another freeze if the state budget allows.
The regents are also expected to consider a cut in tuition rates for non-residents attending the University of Iowa law school.
