CU-Boulder chancellor opposes lower tuition cap

The University of Colorado regents are expected to consider a 4 percent cap on tuition increases, lower than the 9.5 percent cap recently requested by administrators.

Regents were scheduled to consider the lower cap during their meeting Wednesday.

CU-Boulder Chancellor Phil DiStefano spoke against the proposal Tuesday.

The Daily Camera reports that he says now isn't the best time to decide tuition levels because the state budget is still uncertain.

University officials say their formal request to increase in-state tuition by up to 9.5 percent next year keeps their options open if state funding keeps dropping.

Colleges must seek state permission to raise tuition more than 9 percent in a single year for in-state undergraduates.
