UW Considers Not Increasing Tuition
Written by Andrew-Rossi on March 19, 2018
In other news from UW, officials are considering no tuition increases for the 2018-2019 academic year, despite a Board of Trustees policy that calls for a 4 percent increase each year.
A capacity study had suggested the university could increase enrollment by attracting out-of-state students by lowering its non-resident tuition. University administrator David Jewells says the administration found that study was “directionally accurate” and believe it is more beneficial to implement its suggestions sooner rather than later.
The Boomerang reports that instead, university officials are looking to raise mandatory student fees to cover costs related to athletics and student services. UW administrators will present their recommendations to the board during its Thursday meeting.
