UI may seek 8 percent student fee increase
MOSCOW — The University of Idaho may seek to increase student fees next year by more than 8 percent.
University interim president Steven Daley-Laursen detailed the proposal in a memo sent to student leaders at the Moscow school on Tuesday.
Full-time students would pay $196 more per semester with the 8.46 fee increase, which means the total cost for a semester would increase to $2,512.
University of Idaho students this year are now paying 5 percent more in fees than they did last year.
In southern Idaho, officials at Boise State University have said they may propose a 7.9 increase in student fees and tuition for next year.
The state Board of Education is scheduled to consider fee proposals from Idaho’s public universities and colleges in April.
