MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Tuition at the University of Minnesota will rise about 5.5 percent next year if regents approve a plan presented by university President Mark Yudof.
The increase would cost full-time, undergraduate students about $230 more across the year. The average annual tuition is now $4,200.
The cost of room and board also is proposed to rise by about $245 next year, said Mary Ann Ryan, director of Twin Cities residence halls. The 6,000 undergraduates who live on campus this year pay $2,335 a semester for room and board. The cost would be $2,457 a semester next year.
