Tution Hike Coming at UW

Laramie, WY – Attending the University of Wyoming will be a bit more expensive next fall. UW Trustees approved a 3% increase to cover the cost of inflation. Trustees will continue to look at tuition policy, in general, this summer. UW President Phil Dubois says he intends to discuss that broader issue with students and legislators in the fall. He says many institutions have had to increase tuition by as much as 10% recently because of state budget shortfalls. Dubois believes a tuition policy should be crafted during relatively good economic times, rather then setting it during times of financial crisis.
