Tuition Hikes at CSU Schools One Step Closer to Reality

The Connecticut State University’s Board of Trustees will vote next week on a plan that would raise tuition and fees by 2.5 percent.

The Board’s finance and administrative committee voted Thursday to recommend the increase to the full board, which meets April 7 to vote on the proposal.

If the 2.5 percent increase is approved, average tuition and fees would jump by $198 for in-state undergraduate commuter students and $446 for in-state undergraduates who live on campus.

The plan will raise nearly $8 million dollars in the upcoming academic year.  That money will go to plugging $17.6 million gap caused by a cut in state funding.

More than 36,000 students attend Central, Eastern, Western and Southern Connecticut State Universities.
