MSUB gets smallest recommended tuition increase of Montana universities - MATT HOFFMAN, Billings Gazette

After months of speculation on the impact of budget cuts to the Montana University System, Billings has the lowest recommended tuition and fee increase in the state. MUS officials recommended each public university increase tuition and fee costs to help fill an $18.8 million dollar systemwide gap. "We will continue to advocate as strongly as we can for state funding in the future, but it would be irresponsible for us to just assume that state funding will continue to rise at the level it has in Montana," MUS spokesman Kevin McRae said Thursday after a public conference call with regents announcing tuition recommendations. "Tuition revenue is going to be much more important than it has been over the last 10 years." http://billingsgazette.com/news/local/education/msub-gets-smallest-recommended-tuition-increase-of-montana-universities/article_3ef67262-81e5-502b-a27f-855757729638.html
