State Board OKs tuition hikes, but trims those for BSU, U of I

The U of I was approved for a 5 percent increase, short of the 5.9 percent it requested; and BSU for 6.9 percent, short of the 8.6 percent requested. “The board recognizes the need to balance access and affordability with the ability to maintain quality programs and facilities at our public institutions,” said Board President Ken Edmunds.ISU got its requested 4.5 percent increase; LCSC got its requested 4 percent; and Eastern Idaho Technical College got its requested 4.9 percent.

BSU issued a news release about how the increase fits into its plans to shift toward charging tuition on a per-credit basis; you can read it here.
