3.9% Tuition Hikes Recommended for 2 Iowa Universities

URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) – Tuition increases of 3.9% have been recommended to the Iowa Board of Regents.

The regents are expected to vote on the proposal Wednesday at their meeting in Urbandale.

The increases would take effect next fall at the University of Iowa in Iowa City and Iowa State University in Ames. But no increase was recommended for the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls. Officials say Northern Iowa has a different competitive landscape and student body makeup.

The tuition increases are being sought because the Legislature has approved an education budget that includes $6 million less than university officials had sought.
