CSU-Pueblo plans 4 percent tuition increase
PUEBLO, Colorado – Colorado State University-Pueblo says it will raise in-state tuition by 4 percent this year.
The increase, announced Wednesday, is well under the 9 percent the state permitted.
Out-of-state tuition will stay the same, but full-time resident students will pay about $137 a year more.
College president Joseph Garcia says he hopes the smaller tuition increase will help low-income students stay in school and attract new students as well.
The college is dealing with a nearly 20 percent dip in state funding.
A survey showed a good bit of support for local government action to bolster workforce housing in town. For now though, that support stops at supporting a new tax for funding.
