Gov. Heineman Proposes Tuition Freeze

Posted: 07 January, 2013

LINCOLN (AP) – Gov. Dave Heineman says he will request an increase in state aid that would allow for a two-year tuition freeze at the University of Nebraska and the State College System. The governor announced an agreement Monday that would allow the university and the colleges to hold tuition flat during the next two academic years. The governor’s budget request includes a $43 million increase in state aid for the University of Nebraska in fiscal year 2015, which would bring total state aid up to $541 million. The Nebraska State College System would see a $4.1 million increase, which would raise total state aid to $49.6 million. If the Legislature agrees to the governor’s recommendation, university and state colleges would freeze tuition for Nebraska students attending University of Nebraska-Lincoln, University of Nebraska-Kearney, University of Nebraska at Omaha, Chadron State, Wayne State and Peru State for 2013-14 and 2014-15.
