Different Fees Considered For UMN Programs

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Board of Regents is considering a way to even the cost of tuition at the University of Minnesota’s 11 colleges.

Provost Tom Sullivan says the cost of education at the different colleges varies. For example, the costs at the Carlson School of Management are higher because the market is driving up faculty salaries.

Under consideration is a new fee for students in colleges that have higher expenses. It would be charged in addition to the technology or course fees students already pay.

The Minnesota Daily reports students can be charged with more than 2,000 possible fees. The university is working to simplify the system so students are clear on what they’re paying for.
