A tuition freeze would benefit UNI students

The Board of Regents, State of Iowa, is committed to keeping tuition affordable for Iowa students. If our public universities receive a 2.6 percent increase in state funding as well as a $4 million special appropriation for UNI, the Regents have vowed to freeze tuition for in-state undergraduate students next fall. 

This is particularly important to UNI undergraduates when you consider:

  • 92 percent of UNI students are from Iowa
  • 75 percent of UNI students demonstrate financial need
  • 25 percent of UNI students are first-generation college students

UNI is doing its part to contain costs and reduce student indebtedness by offering additional loan counseling and financial literacy programs. As a result, the university has helped decrease UNI student loan indebtedness by 7.6 percent. Today's UNI undergraduate students average $23,575 in student debt. 

Please contact your state senator or representative and ask them to support the Board of Regents funding request.  A 2.6 percent increase means UNI in-state undergraduates will not face a tuition increase for the first time in 30 years.
