MINNEAPOLIS, MInn. (AP) In-state undergraduates will enjoy a tuition freeze at the University of Minnesota for the first time in decades under the school's proposed operating budget.
President Eric Kaler has proposed holding tuition for Twin Cities campus students to $12,060 next year. But out-of-state undergraduates will see tuition increases amounting to $1,000 a year at the Twin Cities and Duluth campuses. And some fees will go up for all students, as well as room and board.
The freeze fulfills a pledge Kaler made to legislators in return for higher state financial support. It also comes at a time when Minnesota undergraduates are carrying some of the heaviest student loan burdens in the country.
The Board of Regents will vote on the$3.4 billion operating budget June 14.
