Idaho Universities Poised to Ask Board's Permission For Tuition Hikes

Posted By on Wed, Apr 17, 2013 at 9:50 AM

Idaho's four-year colleges and universities are expected to come before the State Board of Education today in order to ask for tuition hikes. The Board is meeting in Moscow.

Boise State is expected to ask for a 8.6 percent tuition increase, the University of Idaho is poised to ask for a 5.9 percent increase, Idaho State University is expected to ask for a 4.5 percent hike and Lewis-Clark State College is expected to ask for 4 percent increase.

The just-completed 2013 Idaho Legislature approved a 3.8 percent increase of funding to Idaho's higher education, but the institutions will claim that simply isn't enough.

The two-day session gets underway this morning on the campus of the University of Idaho and wraps on Thursday, April 18.
