Pennsylvania Universities plan no immediate tuition increases despite state budget stalemate - Bill Schackner, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Penn State President Eric Barron has said he wants to freeze tuition again in 2016-17, provided the state restores deep budget cuts from several years back, and at the moment prospects for that appear to be murky at best. But one item not in jeopardy — at least for this year — is the the tuition freeze that Penn State trustees agreed to back in July for the 2015-16 academic year. “There has been no discussion of rescinding any agreement mid-year and we would not retroactively raise tuition for 2015-16,'” spokeswoman Lisa Powers said this week after Gov. Tom Wolf unveiled his proposed state budget for 2016-17. http://www.post-gazette.com/news/education/2016/02/13/Universities-plan-no-immediate-tuition-increases-despite-state-budget-stalemate/stories/201602120253
