Tuition and fee increases approved by Idaho State Board of Education

MOSCOW, Idaho — The Idaho State Board of Education has approved tuition and fee increases at the state's four-year institutions for full-time undergraduates, as requested by each of the public four-year universities in Idaho.

At Boise State University, students will see a 4.9 percent increase. University of Idaho will see a 5.6 increase and Lewis-Clark State College will see a 5.5 percent hike. The largest increase in tuition is at Idaho State University with 6.1 percent.

“All of us would like to reduce the costs or hold the costs down for students,” Board Member Andrew Scoggin said. “We put our institutions in a very tough situation when they have normal increases that are going to arise in order to provide quality education and to maintain facilities. Cost to students is critical, but so is the quality of their education.”

The board approved the increase on a 5-3 vote.
