AMES, Iowa -- For the third year in a row tuition will not increase at the three public universities in Iowa.

The Iowa Board of Regents voted unanimously Wednesday afternoon to continue the tuition freeze for another year for in-state students.

The board says the freeze is possible due in part to cost saving measures implemented earlier this year.

Before this current three-year freeze, tuition had increased every year for three decades at the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and the University of Northern Iowa.

The Board of Regents did raise tuition for non-residents and graduate students.  They will see tuition go up about 1.75%.
