Regent's Roundup

From Minnesota Alumni Magazine Summer 2016

  • The University of Minnesota Board of Regents approved a five-year enrollment and tuition plan that increases undergraduate tuition for new out-of-state students 9.9 percent while minimizing tuition increases for Minnesota students. Already enrolled nonresident students will receive waivers to mitigate the increase. Resident students will see an increase of 2.5 percent, though financial aid enhancements will offset the increase for about 10,000 students with family incomes up to $120,000.
  • The U currently has the lowest nonresident undergraduate tuition in the Big Ten. The plan would bring it to the midpoint of the conference.
  • The enrollment portion of the plan calls for a modest increase in the number of undergraduates, from 30,500 to up to 33,000, while increasing critical student services such as on-campus housing, academic advising, and career preparation.
  • Projected student outcomes include raising the four- and six-year graduation rate and increasing the annual number of graduates in science, technology, engineering, and math from the current 3,300 to 3,600.
