President Andy Feinstein announced Friday that the Board of Trustees unanimously voted to keep tuition flat for the University of Northern Colorado’s 2020-21 academic year. The Board of Trustees also voted to increase student fees by $75 per semester.
According to an email sent to out to campus, the decision to not increase tuition is important given the financial impact students and their families are dealing with due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The $75 increase in student fees will be used to support the delivery of student services and additional technology needs.
“The financial well-being of our students continues to be of the utmost importance to me,” Feinstein wrote. “As Colorado’s most affordable research institution, we must continue our mission to provide accessible, high-quality teaching, learning, research, and creative works.”
The tuition and fees schedule will be posted online in the coming days.
The Board of Trustees also approved an interim operating budget for the 2020-21 fiscal year beginning July 1. This budget assumes that UNC will offer in-person classes and that campus residence halls will be opened.
A new proposed budget will be presented to the Board of Trustees for review and approval in the fall. This new proposed budget will not affect tuition and fee rates.
