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.
