U of M requests expanded tuition freeze - Don Davis, In Forum

The university -- with campuses in the Twin Cities, Crookston, Morris, Rochester and Duluth -- puts top priority on increasing the number of students who benefit from a tuition freeze, Kaler said Tuesday. Undergraduate students' tuitions have been frozen the last two years, but Kaler suggests expanding the freeze to graduate and medical students. A freeze would save undergraduate students between $2,100 at Crookston to $2,600 in the Twin Cities. Newly eligible students would save varying amounts, up to $7,500 for those in veterinary medicine programs. Without spending $65 million on the freeze, the university predicts tuition would go up 3 percent for undergraduates.
