Minneapolis (Learfield News Service) - Undergraduate tuition at the University of Minnesota may be going up.-

A proposed budget from outgoing President Eric Kaler is slightly higher than what he was talking about earlier but still less than the three-percent level that state lawmakers requested the University stay below.

Under the proposal, tuition at the university's Twin Cities campus would increase by 2.5- percent. The proposed increase at Duluth, Crookston, Morris, and Rochester would be 1.5-percent.

The final budget the legislature approved has only about half the increase in state funding that Kaler asked for at $43.5-million. The Board of Regents will take public input and discuss the budget proposal next Friday then vote the following Wednesday.
