U.W. Tuition Increase Debated

Laramie, Wy – University of Wyoming Trustees are pondering a three percent tuition increase for the fall semester. U.W. President Phil Dubois recommended upping the tuition to cover inflationary costs while administrators look into a new tuition philosophy.
Dubois notes U.W.'s tuition, with the increase, would place it near the bottom of 24 other western universities. Resident undergraduate tuition would rise from 84 dollars to 87 dollars per credit hour. Resident graduate tuition would increase from $142 to $147 per credit hour. Trustees will take formal action on the tuition increase proposal in March.
