AMES, Iowa — The Iowa Board of Regents is meeting Monday afternoon to vote on a tuition increase for students at state-run universities.
The plan would increase tuition by $300 per semester starting this fall at the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and the University of Northern Iowa.
The regents say it’s necessary to cover a $14 million shortfall in funding approved by the Iowa legislature. The increase will end a three year tuition freeze at state schools.
The board meets at 1:00 p.m. in Iowa State University’s Reiman Ballroom.
