University of Nebraska might raise tuition - Kate Howard, World-Herald

A freeze that has kept University of Nebraska tuition the same for two years is unlikely to be possible again next year, according to the NU budget director. Chris Kabourek, budget and planning director, told the NU Board of Regents Friday that the Legislature is unlikely to fund all the university’s requests for the next biennial budget and that a tuition freeze is unlikely. “If we have to consider a tuition increase, it will be moderate and predictable for Nebraska families,” Kabourek said. The university engineered a freeze along with former Gov. Dave Heineman and the Legislature that held tuition steady for the last two-year budget. The state agreed to increase funding to cover the revenue NU would have made in a tuition increase.
