CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - The price of tuition for Iowa’s three major public universities is going up.

The proposal passed unanimously during the Iowa Board of Regents meeting Wednesday morning. They announced the base undergrad tuition rates for in-state, full-time students will go up by $283 at Iowa, and $282 at Iowa State. Each will cost about $8,300 for a full course load.

Northern Iowa goes up by $115 dollars to about $7,800.

The regents also increased out-of-state tuition at all three. University of Iowa students will see a $283 increase, $273 at UNI, and Iowa State will see a $906 dollar increase.

This comes after they kept tuition flat last year because of the pandemic.
