CT Budget Problems Land Directly On State College Students' Backs - Mary Sheppard, Hartford Courant

President Mark E. Ojakian of the Connecticut State Colleges & Universities system, who earlier said his budget would "not be balanced on the backs of our students," nonetheless backed an increase in tuition, which was recently approved by the Board of Regents for Higher Education. So, in the next school year, tuition will increase by 5 percent at Western, Southern, Eastern and Central Connecticut state universities, and by 3.5 percent at community colleges. At Western, the increase means students will have to pay an extra $480 per year.
