Tuition going up again, rate of increase is lower

Tuition continues to go up at Utah's public college's and universities, but the Board of Regents notes that it is not going up as steeply.

The board has approved a five percent increase for Utah State University, USU Eastern and five other schools for next year. Utah Valley University and Salt Lake Community College will go up six percent.

"For most students, this will be the lowest tuition increase in a decade," states a release from the Utah System of Higher Education.

"Regents are asked to consider a number of factors when setting tuition, including state funding, institutional need, and inflation. Higher education saw a budget increase this year and we are pleased that the legislature made support for higher education a priority. However, legislative funding did not cover all mandatory cost increases, and so some tuition increases are needed in order to fully fund personnel, student support, and in some cases, cover revenue shortfalls from temporary declines in enrollment," said Commissioner of Higher Education Dave Buhler.

Full-time (12 to 18 credit hours) USU Eastern resident students will be paying $1,375.68 per semester in tuition plus an additional $235 in fees. That comes to around $3,222 per year. Tuition for non-resident students is twice as much as it is for Utahns but fees are the same.

Students at the USU Logan campus will pay $3,092 per semester in tuition and fees. That is $6,184 per year for undergraduate residents.
