Board of Regents Discuss Freezing Tuition

Posted: Updated:

BOZEMAN - The Montana Board of Regents is meeting on Thursday and Friday in Great Falls. The big topic was freezing tuition rates.

The tuition freeze is part of the college affordability plan, proposed by Governor Steve Bullock.
Under the plan, two-year and four-year colleges would receive an additional $28 million from the state to cover inflation and other campus expenses, in exchange for the tuition freeze.

"The $28 million would be enough state support to be able to continue our educational programs and services without the need to increase revenues through tuition increases," said Kevin McRae, Higher Education Communications.

If tuition rates are frozen, it will be the eighth consecutive year it has happened. The board is expected to make a decision at their meeting on Friday.
