Iowa Board of Regents approves tuition hikes

The Iowa Board of Regents has approved a tuition increase at each of the state's three public universities starting in the fall.

The nine-member board voted Thursday to approve an across-the-board $216 tuition hike for students at the University of Iowa, Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa. Increases for out-of-state, graduate and professional students at the University of Iowa will range from $1,078 to $2,578.  

All three university presidents have argued that tuition increases were needed this fall because the Iowa Legislature has reduced year-over-year state funding to their institutions by nearly $30 million.
