Regents to consider ISU tuition hike

The Iowa Board of Regents will consider a tuition hike at Iowa State when it meets later this month. According to regents documents, the board will discuss raising tuition by four percent for all ISU sudents, meaning in-state tuition would increase $284 and out-of-state tuition would go up $852. In addition, the regents could bump up mandatory student fees by nearly six percent. The regents are also set to discuss cuts to Iowa State's current fiscal year budget as mandated by the state legislature. The school needs to reduce spending by $5.4 million before June 30th. The Board of Regents meets April 11th and 12th in Council Bluffs.
