UW Trustees Approve Tuition And Fee Increase
The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees has approved raising tuition and fees over the next two years.
Under the plan, tuition paid by resident students will increase 2% in each of the next two years while nonresident students will pay 4.5% more in 2013 and 2014.
For a resident undergraduate student: tuition that costs $104 dollars per credit hour this year would increase to $108 dollars per credit hour by 2014. Nonresident per credit hour tuition will go from $576 dollars to $629. Mandatory student fees will increase from just over $1,000 a year.
Even with the increase, a survey says UW has the lowest tuition and fees of all U.S. public doctoral institutions.
