UConn again looking to tuition increases to fill budget gap - JACQUELINE RABE THOMAS, CT Mirror

The University of Connecticut will consider closing up to one-third of its $40.2 million budget shortfall by boosting how much it costs students to attend the public university. "There is a gap that has opened up and is, honestly, growing," Scott Jordan, the school's budget chief, told the school's governing board Wednesday. "We do need to turn to tuition…We need to protect everything we have built.” The board could consider and approve tuition hikes as early as next month. For each percentage point tuition is increased, the university expects an additional $2.6 million in revenue.
