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.
In November 2018, the Board unveiled a five-year tuition model for resident undergraduate students. In-state undergraduate tuition rate guardrails were established for UI and ISU depending on state funding levels. The Board also recognized the importance for UNI to be more competitive in pricing with other regional comprehensive universities and did not set guardrails. The Board allows for flexibility among university leadership to propose tuition rates for other student categories consistent with institutional strategic goals.
