Board Of Regents To Consider 3.5% Tuition Increase

Des Moines, Iowa — The board that governs the three state universities will hold the first reading of a proposed three-and-a-half percent tuition increase in a meeting Thursday.

The Board of Regents’ staff is proposing that increase of in-state tuition for Iowa State University, the University of Iowa, and the University of Northern Iowa for the 2023-2024 academic year after the Iowa Legislature provided no increase in overall funding to the schools. UI students would see a 305-dollar tuition increase, ISU students $304, and UNI students would pay $285 more. The proposal would also increase mandatory fees at the UI by 306 dollars, 60 dollars at ISU, and 32 dollars at UNI.

The Board will consider the final reading of the increase at its meeting in June.
