University Of Wyoming To Seek 2-Year Tuition Hike
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — University of Wyoming officials plan to ask trustees in March to approve tuition rates for a two-year period.
The Laramie Boomerang reports (http://bit.ly/AfLnQE ) that at a meeting Friday, Vice President of Administration Doug Vinzant told trustees adopting a two-year planned tuition program would provide certainty for students.
Currently, annual full-time undergraduate tuition and fees are $4,125 for residents and $12,855 for non-residents.
Vinzant says increases will likely be based on what the university receives in appropriations from the Legislature.
Gov. Matt Mead has recommended providing the university with less than what it requested for faculty salaries and boosting the university's library collections, prompting school officials to look at raising tuition.
Vinzant says that since 2000, tuition has increased 3.9 percent per year on average, or about $130
