NU Board of Regents to consider tuition hike

UNL Architecture Hall

Tuition could be on the way up for architecture students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman has proposed a 25 percent increase to cover the rising costs of instructional technology.  Perlman told the Nebraska Board of Regents about the proposal on Friday. He says the increase would mean resident undergraduates would pay $1,100 more a year, while nonresident undergraduates would see an increase of nearly $2,700.

The increase is called a differential tuition because it would affect only students taking UNL architecture courses. The regents will likely consider the proposal in June, when the board takes up tuition and salary increases for next year.
