Most students at Iowa's three public universities would pay $300 more in the upcoming school year under a plan to increase tuition released Tuesday.
The 4.4 percent increase for undergraduate in-state students would replace a tuition freeze approved by the Board of Regents last year.
Board leaders had warned lawmakers that the freeze was contingent upon receiving additional state funding. The budget signed last week by Gov. Terry
