Board of Regents Hopes to Finalize Tuition Freeze

The Iowa Board of Regents plan to meet by conference call Wednesday to discuss plans to freeze tuition rates for undergraduates while cutting them for out-of-state law students. After months of discussion, they're expected to formally approve the plan. The freeze is contingent on the schools receiving a 4 percent general funding increase from lawmakers next year. Without it, the regents warn they may have to approve an increase later.
