BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4)– Students attending the University of Colorado will have to pay five percent more tuition starting this fall.
The CU Board of Regents unanimously approved the tuition increase for in-state undergraduate students on Thursday afternoon.
That’s lower than proposed hikes of 8.6 percent and 6.7 percent that administration officials had proposed for in-state students.
Regents agreed on the lower tuition hike after approving only $8 million for a tuition-funded salary pool for staff raises instead of $12 million.
Rates for incoming non-resident students and graduate students will increase by 3.8 percent.
