Details of Colo. college tuition hikes expected

PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) – Students could soon learn details of plans to raise tuition at Colorado state colleges and universities.

The Colorado Department of Higher Education is expected to release the plans Wednesday.

Department spokeswoman Dawn Taylor Owens tells the Pueblo Chieftain that the Colorado School of Mines was the only eligible school that hasn’t asked for permission to raise tuition above the 9 percent hike allowed by state lawmakers.



Details of Colorado State University’s proposal have already been released. It could lead to students paying 20 percent more a year.

CSU is planning to help cover the loss of stimulus funds with a 9 percent tuition hike but it says it needs permission to go even higher in case state lawmakers cut funding even more.
