Regents consider another tuition increase

ANKENY (KWWL) -- The Iowa Board of Regents announced Tuesday it may have to increase college tuition more than the already proposed 4.5%.

At Iowa State, in-state students already pay more than $6300.  Next year, they'll pay at least $300 more.

Board of Regents President Davild Miles says they're considering a tuition increase because of state budget cuts.  Culver is planning to cut $45 million from Iowa's public universities.

Students are angry, saying they can't afford higher tuition, especially in this rough economic climate.

President Miles says the board won't decide if and how much those additional tution hikes will be until the legislature finalizes how much they'll cut from the education budget.
