Regents rescind 2 percent tuition increase

PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State University’s Board of Regents on Monday voted to rescind a 2 percent tuition increase in the wake of passage of a new state budget that reinvests in higher education.
 
“We have the best budget we have seen in two decades, and I thank our state legislators for that,” said WSU President Elson S. Floyd. “This is a great day for our students, a wonderful day for their families and very much consistent with what we’ve been trying to do – that is, to keep tuition as low as possible.”
 
Washington lawmakers last week approved a two-year state operating budget that calls for no tuition increases for students. Just as significantly, the Legislature provided additional funding to offset the revenue tuition increases would have generated.
 
“I have been a regent for 10 years,” said board chair Connie Niva, “and this is the first year I have not had to vote to raise tuition, and I can tell you it’s a real, real pleasure.”
