State Board: Tuition hikes may exceed 10 percent next year

Here’s a news item from the Associated Press:  BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The state Board of Education will once again allow Idaho’s public universities to seek tuition and fee increases of more than 10 percent. Trustees voted 7-1 on Thursday to temporarily waive the board policy that prohibits requests for tuition increases of more than 10 percent for full-time students. Board members have stressed that the one-year waiver does not mean they will automatically approve the higher tuition and fee requests in April. The board waived the policy last year, but did not approve any increases above 10 percent. Students at Idaho universities and colleges are now paying between 8.75 percent to 9.5 percent more in tuition and fees compared to last year.
