Regents Consider Tuition Freeze for University of Minnesota-Rochester
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The University of Minnesota has proposed a tuition freeze at three of its five campuses, including Crookston, Duluth and Rochester.
University System regents are expected to vote Friday on the plan that also raises in-state tuition by 1 to 2 percent at the Morris and Twin Cities campuses. In approved, it would raise tuition to about $13,000 a year.
Meanwhile, the Star Tribune says all seven Minnesota State universities and its 30 community colleges are freezing tuition under a legislative mandate. The tuition rate of $7,287 has grown an average of 1 percent a year since 2012.
