For the first time in 31 years, students at Iowa’s 3 public universities won’t see their tuition bills go up next year. That’s if lawmakers stick with their plan.

Today, the Board of Regents approved a tuition freeze for in-state students at Iowa, Iowa State and UNI. It’s the first time that’s happened since 1981.

The tuition freeze is dependent on the state legislature giving Regents at least a 2.6%  increase in funding next year. Last year, the legislature increased funding for Regents’ institutions by 4%.

Even if tuition is frozen, other fees could still rise, including room and board.
