UW trustees raise tuition for most students

Posted: Updated:

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Tuition for most University of Wyoming students will increase by 4 percent in the 2019-20 academic year.

The UW Board of Trustees on Thursday approved the tuition increase in keeping with a multiyear tuition policy adopted in 2014.

Wyoming resident undergraduates will see their tuition increase from $134 to $139 per credit hour, while nonresident undergraduate tuition will go from $537 to $558 per credit hour. Most other graduate programs also will see a 4 percent increase.

The university says even with the increase, UW's tuition and fees for resident undergraduates will remain the lowest among the nation's doctoral degree-granting institutions.

The board also approved cutting tuition for several online programs that have seen declining enrollment because of the tuition and fees UW charged were higher than its peers.
