State budget shortfall could mean tuition hike
The University of Colorado, Boulder is short $21 million for the 2010/2011 school year.
The University of Colorado is preparing for a $21 million budget shortfall that could affect tuition for the 2010/2011 school year. The governor is expected to allow an increase in tuition of up to nine percent next year. According to an article in the Colorado Daily, students in the College of Arts and Sciences now pay $6,153 for in-state tuition a year. The maximum increase of nine percent would mean an additional $554. Regents of the University of Colorado are discussing other options to increase revenue that could save students from bearing the burden of a tuition increase. Among these option are switching to a trimester schedule, enrolling more foreign students and expanding the summer school program.
