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.
