Two Year Tuition Freeze in Nebraska

University of Nebraska Regents have followed through with the promise…a freeze of tuition for increased state funding. The Unicameral approved a four percent funding increase for the four-campus system. University of Nebraska President J-B Milliken says the budget is the result of the successful agreement reached between the governor and the legislature.

University of Nebraska Regent Tim Clare of Lincoln says it took a cooperative effort to freeze tuition for the next two years.

The tuition freeze could save a Nebraska student a thousand dollars over the next two years. The tuition for out-of-state students will go up by three percent. The legislature also appropriated three million dollars over the next two years to build a new College of Nursing building in Lincoln.
