UConn May Mull Fee Hikes

University of Connecticut officials plan to meet this month to discuss possible increases in tuition and fees for the school’s 30,000 students.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s proposed budget would cut UConn’s state allocation by 10 percent, or about $35 million. UConn officials are reviewing ways to absorb the reduction if lawmakers approve it, including whether tuition and fees would need to be increased.

The school’s board of trustees plans to call a meeting this month on the matter, but a date hadn’t been set as of Friday.

In-state students attending UConn full time at the main Storrs campus currently pay about $21,200 for tuition, room and board. Out-of-state students pay about $37,700.

At the regional campuses, tuition and fees are about $8,100 for in-state students and $25,100 for out-of-state students.

    Ithought this Gov was for Education.. Looks like he will be hindering Many students who cannot afford higher tuition and expenses…..
    His plan may also inhibit the future growth of students who wish to study
    Medicine and Nursing and Veterniary Sciences since I believe his budget
    may not fund affiliations with other out of state schools Like ours with
    Iowa and its Vet program
