2009-10 MnSCU tuition increase recommended

By: News Tribune, Duluth News Tribune
Tuition and fees would increase between 2.7 percent and 3.3 percent at Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system schools in the Northland under the budget Chancellor James H. McCormick is recommending.

Under McCormick’s recommendation, average tuition would increase by $114 at two-year colleges and $169 at state universities for the 2009-10 academic year. The proposed increases do not include the University of Minnesota Duluth, which is in a separate system.

Statewide, students at MnSCU’s 25 state colleges would pay an average tuition of $4,194, or 2.8 percent more than the current year, while students at the seven state universities would pay an average tuition of $5,791, or

3 percent more.

At Northland colleges, tuition and fees would increase by 3.3 percent at Lake Superior, Hibbing Community, Itasca Community, Mesabi Range Community and Technical, and Vermilion Community colleges. Tuition and fees would increase 3.2 percent at Rainy River Community College and by 2.7 percent at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College.

The MnSCU Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing on the proposed budget and recommended tuition increases from

1-3 p.m. Wednesday at the system office in St. Paul. The trustees are not expected to act on the proposed budget until their July board meeting.
