UCCS fees could see increase come April

Posted By on Wed, Feb 1, 2012 at 1:47 PM


A meeting of the University of Colorado regents, at the school's Colorado Springs campus, could bring additional costs to the student come April, reported yesterday.

The regents, meeting at CU’s Colorado Springs campus, won’t vote on tuition and fees until April, but this month’s agenda includes a list of possible fee hikes for next year. The Boulder student activities fee could rise “not more” than 5 percent while the fee at the Denver campus could rise 9.6 percent. Various room and board fees might rise at rates around 4 percent. (See full list.)

Proposed resident tuition rates that could top 15 percent were discussed at the regents’ January meeting and raised some eyebrows (see Boulder Daily Camera story), and members of Occupy CU-Boulder held a teach-in on campus Tuesday to protest rising tuition.

Potential increases at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs include raised fees for courses on topics like anthropology, film, chemistry and math (though health science and nursing actually decrease). Fees for housing for quads in Summit Village could be increasing from $4,650 to $4,825, with similar increases across all living quarters.

See a great story from the Colorado Springs Business Journal on the new architectural developments at the college here.
