UW trustees consider tuition increase

Mar 23, 2012 - The Associated Press

LARAMIE (AP) -- The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees is considering tuition and fee increases over the next two years.

Under the plan the board is set to vote on Friday, tuition paid by resident students at the state's only four-year public university would increase 2 percent in each of the next two fiscal years for 2013 and 2014.

Tuition for nonresident students would increase 4 percent the first year and an additional 2 percent the following year.

For a resident undergraduate student, tuition that costs $104 per credit hour this year would increase to $108 per credit hour by 2014.

The extra money raised will be used in part to support university libraries and classroom technology.

There's also a proposal to raise student fees to help pay for various other costs.

James Trosper of Fort Washakie is one of the trustees on the 14-member board.
