Trustees Consider Tuition Hike

Laramie, Wy – Students at the University of Wyoming would
pay about 182-dollars more next year in tuition and fees if the
university has its way.
University officials presented their proposal yesterday (Friday)
to the Board of Trustees. Included was a tuition increase of
five-point-seven percent, with most of that going toward academic
and administrative support.
The tuition increase also would pay for a new student
information system, which handles online course registration,
financial aid, and e-mail.
The university also wants to increase student fees, including a
six-dollar hike in the athletic fee.
But Board of Trustees President Kathleen Hunt said the athletic
fee hike seemed a bit steep, saying it passed her, quote "ouch
factor."
Trustees will vote on the proposal in March.
