MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - University of Minnesota regents will consider raising tuition for the business school at its flagship campus.
A proposal regents will hear about Thursday increases tuition at the Carlson School of Management by $2,000.
University president Eric Kaler told business school faculty and alumni Tuesday that the extra revenue would help Carlson attract top teaching talent and bolster its scholarship funds.
Kaler says Minnesota is the only Big Ten school that doesn't charge "differential tuition.'' Minnesota Public Radio News says the regents aren't expected to vote on the increase until next spring.
