BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - University of Colorado regents plan to explore the idea of guaranteeing in-state students on the campus in Boulder that their tuition won't rise over four years.
The Camera newspaper reports that regents plan to delve deeper into the idea next month. CU already offers a similar guarantee to out-of-state students.
Barmak Nassirian of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers warns that tuition guarantees can lead institutions to overestimate four-year costs and inflate entry-level prices.
In-state tuition at CU's College of Arts and Sciences is $7,018 this year. The state has given early approval for up to a 9.5 percent hike for the next school year.
