What is the Board's tuition policy?
Consistent with Iowa law (Iowa Code §262.9.23) and the Board’s strategic plan, the Board’s tuition policy is to establish tuition rates that provide some predictability for assessing and anticipating changes.
The Board of Regents allows each university president sufficient flexibility to propose tuition and fee rates consistent with institutional strategic goals. The Board evaluates tuition proposals using an inflationary percentage range of the projected Higher Education Price Index as a benchmark.
The Board also requires the universities to set aside a minimum of 15 percent of gross tuition revenues for student financial aid.
