CSUS Board To Vote on Tuition Hikes

The Board of Trustees for the Connecticut State University System will vote on a proposal that would increase tutition and fees 2.5 percent for the next academic year.

The proposal was endorsed by one of the board’s subcommittees last week.

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

The board supervises Central, Eastern, Southern and Western Connecticut State universities. More than 36,600 students attend the schools.

Gov. Malloy has proposed cutting the system’s budget by $17.6 million next year, of which $7.8 million would be covered by the tuition increase if it is adopted.
