UVM trustees to mull 3.4 percent tuition hike


BURLNGTON (AP) - The University of Vermont administration has proposed a 3.4 percent tuition increase for the next academic year.

A panel of the board of trustees is expected to review the recommendation on Monday.

The proposal would raise tuition for in-state students from $13,728 to $14,184. According to reports, that would be accompanied by a 3.6 percent boost in the total financial aid expenditure, which would offset the rise in tuition for some students.

Tuition for out-of-state students would rise to $35,832, from $34,656.

The trustees already have approved a 3.6 percent increase in room and board fees.

The school increased tuition by 2.9 percent last year and 3.5 percent the year before.

The committee is expected to recommend a tuition increase to the full board in May.
