(AP) - The University of Minnesota will freeze tuition for most students next school year in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The tuition freeze applies to all students on the university’s five campuses except for those enrolled in three professional programs.

Those are dentistry, the medical school and three professional masters in the College of Science and Engineering at the Twin Cities campus.

University President Joan Gabel proposed the tuition freeze.

The Star Tribune reports the Board of Regents unanimously approved the freeze Tuesday.

Administrators say the freeze will provide financial relief to current students and help attract new students during the pandemic.
