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.
