UW trustees expected to vote on new tuition rates

Cheyenne, Wyo. – The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees is expected to vote this weekend on a plan to raise tuition next fall for all students except for undergraduate students from Wyoming.

Resident undergrads make up about 40 percent of the university's enrollment of more than 13,100 students, meaning most students would see a tuition increase.

The proposal would raise tuition about 5 percent for nonresident undergraduates, all graduate students, all law students and all pharmacy students.

The university also is proposing mandatory fees of about $433 per student, up 8 percent from this year.

Rates for most campus housing and meal plans would also increase about 2 to 4 percent. Under the change, the most common dorm rooms would cost about $3,500 per year and the most common meal plan would cost about $4,500 per year.
