WSU proposes limiting tuition increase



A proposal to limit any tuition increase at Washington State University and its branch campuses, including WSU Vancouver, to 2 percent for the coming academic year will be on the agenda when the WSU Board of Regents meets at 3 p.m. Thursday. Videoconferencing of the meeting will be available at the WSU Vancouver campus in the Dengerink Administration Building, Room 307.

The proposed tuition cap is intended to provide students and parents a sense of certainty about tuition rates for the year, despite the state Legislature’s delay in the approval of a final budget.

The proposed cap is subject to legislative continuation of the tuition-setting authority granted state universities.
