Board of Regents vote to continue tuition freeze for university students


DES MOINES –The Iowa Board of Regents has one again voted to freeze tuition at the three major universities in the state.

Gov. Terry Branstad today released the following statements applauding the Iowa Board of Regents’ action, which is the first step toward freezing tuition at Regent universities for the third-straight year.

“We’re pleased the Iowa Board of Regents continues working with us to give Iowa students access to affordable, high-quality education in Iowa,” said Governor Terry Branstad. “We look forward to working with the Board of Regents on our initiative to provide Iowa students a variety of fixed-priced four-year degrees. Upon receiving the Revenue Estimating Conference’s December report, we will begin crafting the state budget with hopes to continue the tuition freeze.”

The University of Northern Iowa has pushed for the tuition freeze to continue.

“If our public universities receive a 2.6 percent increase in state funding as well as a $4 million special appropriation for UNI, the Regents have vowed to freeze tuition for in-state undergraduate students next fall,” the university says on its website.
